The Heurich House Museum preserves the legacy of Christian Heurich and enriches the creative economy of Washington, DC. The private non-profit Heurich House Museum preserves the historic Heurich House mansion as a museum and community center. The mansion, which was built from 1892-94, was the home of German immigrant, local brewer, and philanthropist Christian Heurich (1842-1945). Recognized as Washington, DC’s most successful brewer, he ran the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. until his death at 102. The mansion is notable for its technological innovations, original interiors, and rich archival collection of one of the most important local families. The museum is open for regular public events and public tours. Private tours and event rentals are also available. 

The museum educates the public about the life and times of Christian Heurich and promotes a deeper understanding of late-Victorian architecture, technological innovation in the built environment, the brewing industry of Washington, DC, and the German immigrant experience in America. 

The Heurich House Museum is seeking a part-time Event Bartender with professional bartending experience to provide on-site assistance and excellent customer service during public programs and private events.
