Introducing The Boar Award

Introducing The Boar Award

Waterloo Brewing is proud to announce a new internal employee recognition program – The Boar Award! Every month, Waterloo Brewing staff will be nominating their peers to be the recipient of The Boar Award. The winners will be the kind of employees who go above and beyond – and they’re so cool that we want you to get to know them, too! 

 

For September, to get the ball rolling, we awarded four employees with the coveted Boar Award.
