After a two-year pandemic-fueled break, Miller Brewing is preparing to bring back its Miller Brewery Tours. Part of the prep work is hiring tour guides.

Think you have what it takes to be an ambassador to the official Champagne of Beers region?

Molson Coors is hosting in-person tour guide and hospitality server auditions at Miller Visitor Center, 4251 W. State St., on Wednesday, June 8 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Walk-ins are welcome. You must be 18 or older and the brewery suggests you arrive with your, "winning smile, outgoing personality and unique talents."

Please bring your resume and a photo I.D.

Tours are expected to return as soon as possible this summer, according to a Molson Coors spokesperson, but the exact date depends on sufficient staffing. Hence the auditions.
