    Freewheel is an 8 BBL brewpub in Redwood City, CA. We were founded with a mission to bring authentic English cask ale to the Bay Area, and while our lineup of beers has expanded over the years, our commitment to craft and quality remains.

    We are looking for an Assistant Brewer to join our team. This is a great, hands-on opportunity for a motivated individual to work on all aspects of the brewing process. We’re a small team, so everyone does a bit of everything!

    • Quality assurance, including detailed record keeping

    • Occasional recipe development

    • Representing the brewery at festivals and promotional events, when needed

    • Did I remember to mention cleaning?


    • Two years' experience in beer production

    • Understanding of fundamental brewing processes (mashing, boil, fermentation, conditioning, etc.)

    • Ability to work well with a team, including good verbal and written communication skills

    • Strong attention to detail while multitasking
