  • Brewmaster needed in Saskatoon, CANADA.

    Who we are:
    Prairie Sun Brewery is looking for a brewmaster! Our brewery is the second microbrewery to open in Saskatchewan and sits on Broadway Avenue, the heart of Saskatoon. We recently relocated to Broadway to focus more on the internal atmosphere and beer education for our city.

    Our mission is to create an exceptional craft beer experience for the people that live in Saskatchewan and the people that visit saskatoon.

    Over the past 7 years we have won several business awards and have gained a positive community reputation for great beer and great service.

    We previously brewed 60,000L of beer a year but have tripled our brewing capacity with the relocation to Broadway. We brew on a 2 vessel custom brewhouse from Cru brew systems in Chilliwack BC.

    Our team is the most important thing to Prairie Sun. We practice open book management where each staff member takes ownership of the numbers. We model our business closely to the Zing group of companies and business in Ann Arbor Michigan.

    We have recently bought a 4 head can filler from Wild Goose. We hope to ramp up production as soon as the canner arrives.

    We like to brew whatever brings us joy in the moment. We brew many one off beers experimenting with in-season ingredients both in new and classic styles. Our flagship beers are a Belgium Farmhouse Ale, Crazy Farm; and a Porter, Toffee 5.
