When a position is available, you can usually find it posted on Yahoo Hot Jobs or Career Builder. We also post listings on our
Employment page on our website. Due to the high number of job inquiries we receive and our low turnover rate, we only accept resumes when a position is available.
Oatmeal Stout Locations
The Oatmeal Stout is available year-round, but only on draft at a limited number of locations. We post our Oatmeal Stout draft locations on its profile page. Although we do our best to keep this list updated, you may want to call ahead to confirm that the bar still has it available.

Where can I find the date code?
Summit has an “Enjoy By” date to be found on one of the long sides of each case and 12-pack. It should be at the top upper, right-hand corner on one of the sides. It is only on one side so it may be necessary to turn a package to see it. There is no date on individual 6-packs, but each Summit bottle has an “Enjoy By” date video-coded on the neck of the bottle just above the shoulder.
The packaging date is also laser printed in the upper left corner of the label. There are 8 characters. The first 4 are the packaging date expressed as a Julian date - the first character is the year and the next three are the numerical day of the year. The final four characters are simply the time that bottle was filled.
Can I order Summit ales and lagers directly from you?
Unfortunately, we are not permitted to sell or ship beer directly to consumers. Please use our Where to Find page to find a distributor in your area, who should be able to direct you to local retailers. Our out of state sales reps’ emails are also listed to assist you with finding our beers.
What's the difference between an ale and a lager?
The difference between ales and lagers has nothing to do with strength, color, or bitterness. It’s the yeast and the fermentation temperature. Ale yeasts ferment best at warmer temperatures — up to about 75° F. Because a yeasty foam rises to the surface of the beer, these are known as “top-fermenting” yeasts.
Lager yeasts, on the other hand, prefer cooler temperatures. They are called “bottom-fermenting” yeasts because they sink to the bottom of the beer during the cold storage period traditional for lager beers. This process removes haze and gives lagers their characteristic clean, rounded tastes.
