LEAD BREWER

Fancy being our Lead Brewer?
We are looking for someone who prides themselves on quality, attention to detail, has a kind heart and will bring passion & dedication to craft beers and ciders to our team.
But above all, we want excitement, innovation, and energy.
You’ll lead, mentor and manage the operations team.
 
You’ll also play a significant role in creating the Limited Release annual schedule – bringing styles and flavours to the table – you’ll be pushing the boundaries and crafting a solid and yet innovative brewing schedule.
You will not waiver from the highest standards of operational quality – and yet the team will follow your inspiration and cool ideas. They’ll want more and you’ll give it to them in spades.
 
Being fully proficient in brewing and packaging operations and technical know-how is a given, and naturally it’s your responsibility for the oversight of our food control plan and best practise brewing – but you’ll also lead our continuous improvement program. Naturally, you are curious, gifted with ideas and driven.
 
You will lead a small close-knit team, report to the Master Brewer, be responsible for ensuring high standards of quality and hygiene and ensure all production schedules are met. You are an ambassador, a qualified brewer and have been team lead or similar for a few years but, you desire more > more freedom, responsibility and job satisfaction.
