2005 - Tipping Out Brewers
Friday, December 16, 2005 3:23 PM
the only staff members that are tipped are those that are paid hourly. That includes
wait staff. At our three Steelhead Brewing Co. locations (Eugene, Burlingame,
and Irvine,) wait staff tip out the cooks, expediters, and bussers, but not the
brewers. Head Brewers are salary employees and would not qualify for tips. Assistant
Brewers and Keg Washers are paid hourly, but are not tipped out.
have never heard of brewers being tipped out by wait staff, and I wouldn't recommend
it. Hourly assistant brewers and keg washers do not deal with the public directly
in any way, and their performance is not directly related to the customer's experience
while the customer is onsite.
