Help Wanted: Craft Beertender and Cellar Technician

Stable Craft Brewing in Waynesboro, Va., has immediate openings for Craft Beertender and Cellar Technician.

“In the fall in the Shenandoah Valley, there’s about one of these rides every weekend,” said Peter Dula ’92, a professor of Bible and religion and member of the ride planning committee. “With so many faculty, staff and students who ride regularly and with cycling such a part of our sustainably oriented transportation plan, we thought it would be fun to do an EMU version that celebrates the Homecoming and Family Weekend.”

Other members of the committee include Ben Bailey ’12, advisor to the EMU Cycling Club and administrative assistant in the applied social science department; Matthew Freed, recycling team coordinator; Greta Ann Herin, biology professor; and student Aaron Dunmore, EMU Cycling Club president.

The route includes roads on both sides of Va. 11 with some hills and flat stretches that will challenge all riders.

“We picked a route with some exceptional views,” Dula said. “It’s a great way to see more of the Valley if you’re from out of town or to just experience the beauty that we enjoy every day.”
