    • 10 Barrel JV Northwest 3 Vessel system, new when installed in 2015
    • 80 bbl fermentation space: 4 – 10 bbl and 2 – 20 bbl
    • 100 bbl bright/serving: 6 – 10 bbl and 2 -20 bbl

    The position includes all aspects of inventory, ordering, cleaning, production, cellaring and packaging.

    We are specifically looking for someone with a creative side that is different than that of our current brewers.

    • As we grow our outside distribution, we want to grow the bounds of our brewing
    • Significant creative latitude in recipe development will be allowed to the Lead Brewer

    • Move 165lb and team lift 165lb
