  • Production Brewer position at Coastal Empire Beer Co. in Savannah, GA

    We have an opening for a Production Brewer position at Coastal Empire Beer Co. in Savannah, GA. We are looking to add to our award-winning team ASAP!

    Coastal Empire Beer Co. is a production brewery located in Savannah, GA. We operate a two vessel 20 BBL brewhouse and double batch into 40 BBL fermenters and package our beer in both kegs and cans. Last year we produced approximately 20,000 CEs (case equivalents) and will be growing that number this year as restrictions due to covid ease up / go away (capacity to produce approximately 60,000 CEs/4,400 BBL). We are looking for a candidate that has exposure to both brewing, packaging, and warehousing aspects of beer production. We do not expect complete competence in all aspects, but the ideal candidate will be a fast learner. The typical duties and necessary skills/job requirements are listed below. The current production team consists of the brewer, two cellar/packaging technicians, and the owner/brewer (who assists as needed [even with keg cleaning] but is primarily kept busy by administrative duties). Come join our team and help us continue to produce high-quality, award-winning beers!

    • Able and willing to have a flexible work schedule which includes working on weekends (very rare) early starts and/or long days to ensure production stays on schedule and distributors are not stocked out (during peak summer season the schedule sporadically includes up to 60-hour weeks)
    • Capable of problem solving and working efficiently (i.e., identify what may also be done while waiting on another task to finish and not be a serial task executor)
    • Can operate machinery and mechanical equipment necessary to complete duties
    • Able to maintain a valid driver’s license
