The Blind Enthusiasm Brewing Company is looking to expand its brewing team with the addition of two Assistant Brewers: one at The Monolith, and one at the Market. The Market is known for brewing clean beers, particularly lagers, and barrel-aged beers. The Monolith is known for its mixed fermentation and spontaneous beers.
Each successful candidate will be assigned to a position at one of the breweries with limited direct work crossover with the other. Duties for each position are consistent with standard brewing jobs and are outlined in the attached job description. At both locations new hires will be first trained in cellaring and once that is mastered they will be trained in brewing. These are full time, permanent positions.
Salary for this position is $42,500.
Our preferred candidates will have either industry experience, training at a brewing school, and/or a laboratory or science background. A familiarity with technology is also an asset as we have a variety of online systems used at our breweries.
