Workforce Challenges Issue

For the January/February 2021 The New Brewer, we present our Workforce Challenges issue. In November 2021, 4.5 million employees quit their jobs, and the Great Resignation has had reverberating effects on the craft brewing industry in the form of labor shortages and other challenges. We also examine the importance of creating a craft culture along with a craft product, and outline how one brewery shifted to self-service for its restaurant in the middle of the pandemic.
