Experienced Brewery/Cellar Assistant seeking FT or PT position
I am currently underemployed, and have worked (in various capacities) the past 5 years for several Oregon Brewers Guild establishments: BJ's, Lompoc, Widmer, Cascade and Bridgeport . I am looking to keep my skill set intact and fresh, so I am seeking any Cellar/Brewery Assistant or Assistant Brewer position. I have participated as a volunteer and/or intern at two wineries during crush/harvest production season, with nearly a full year of practical experience at Hip Chicks Do Wine. I am currently doing independent contractor work with Widmer Brewing in Bottling/Canning, Packaging, Warehouse, and Dock Sales. I am also currently getting recertified on forklifts.
I have been a homebrewer for 7 years, and volunteer at many of the Pacific NW's premier beer and wine festivals/events. I have attached my resume, so you may peruse my qualifications. I am a 15-year Oregon resident, and want to remain in the OR/SW WA area, if possible!
I am still trying to get into Seibel or ABG, but classes have all filled. Meanwhile, I know my practical experience and adaptable, quick-thinking character are very compatible with any facet of the brewing industry: malting, brewing, cellaring, bottling, delivery, tap/line sanitation and distribution/merchandising. I have novice knowledge/experience in manual and fully automated keg washers and bottling lines, which has been my most recent practical skills application at Widmer and Bridgeport Brewing. I am amenible to independent contractor, on-call, and at-will employment. I also possess my (Multnomah) County Food Handler's Card and OLCC Server's Permit, so I am ready to assist you in a tasting room or brewpub environment.
Thank you for time and consideration. Cheers!
