Boulder, Colo. — Available April 11, Crafting Brewery Culture: A Human Resources Guide for Small Breweries from Brewers Publications® is the first and only human resources book for the craft brewing industry. Crafting Brewery Culture is the newest addition to Brewers Publications' Business of Beer portfolio of resources for brewers to excel in beer quality, finance, and now human resources. Written by Gary Nicholas, Crafting Brewery Culture provides breweries of all sizes with an invaluable roadmap for building a growth-centered brewery culture driven by positive reinforcement, teamwork, and accountability.
"Anyone who has visited, worked in, or owned a brewery knows that employees are the most important asset of a successful business," said author Gary Nicholas. "People management and leadership are not always intuitive skills, so I wrote Crafting Brewery Culture to provide brewery teams with scalable tools for building, sustaining, and growing a resilient company culture. I've also included templates for everything from hiring to training plans, writing standard operating procedures, and performance assessments to goal setting. It's easy to get started, with or without a dedicated human resources department."
Since 1997, Nicholas has held various leadership roles across many facets of the craft beer industry—both as a consultant and brewery staff. His consultancy work focuses on supporting sustainable, scalable growth for breweries at both operational and leadership levels. In addition, he has managed environmental health and safety operations; written and presented on human resources, safety, quality, and food safety issues; and is currently the operations manager for SanTan Brewing Company in Chandler, Ariz.
