  • Head Brewer & Assistant Brewer - Lion's Tail Brewing (Neenah, WI)

    Lion's Tail Brewing Co. (Neenah, WI) is a family-owned, highly-rated brewery/brewpub known for our creativity and consistent exploration of new styles in our market. Customer demand has helped steadily grow our business over the past 7 years since our founding in 2015 - most recently with the opening of a 2nd taproom location in the Milwaukee market (Wauwatosa). With a 10-bbl, 2-vessel electric brew system we will finish the year between 1500-1600 bbls, including a mix of in-house canned and kegged beer/seltzer that is self-distributed to most of the major markets in Wisconsin. With recent capacity upgrades to our Neenah brewery, we plan to produce up to 2300 bbl/year. The new Milwaukee location includes stubbed-in production space for a brewery to be constructed in mid-2023 with capacity in a similar range as we continue to steadily grow.

    We are currently looking to add hard-working, creative and talented brewers to our Neenah brewery staff, including a Head Brewer and an Assistant Brewer. We anticipate staffing the Milwaukee brewery at some point in mid to late 2023, so relocation is a possibility we'll consider for the right candidate as that next chapter begins.

    Preferred Qualifications:
    Head Brewer: >5 years commercial brewing experience with a proven track record for consistent quality. Formal brewing education or relatable higher education is a plus. Management/leadership experience preferred. Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to work with a diverse group of people. Ability to communicate effectively with brewery staff as well as between the different departments in our small company (sales, operations, hospitality, marketing, etc.). Proven track record of promoting a culture of workplace safety. Must have advanced mechanical aptitude with the ability to troubleshoot typical small brewery equipment and a drive to continuously improve processes. Must be physically capable of manual brewery processes typical of a small brewery as we have limited automation. Must be available to work Mon-Fri with enough flexibility to sufficiently manage our brewery staff (typical brew days are 9 to 12 hours total, staggered with assistant brewers), and occasional functions as needed on weekends. Participation at brewery/company events is assumed with these duties shared among all of our full-time staff.
    Assistant Brewer: 1 to 5 years commercial brewing experience (or) relatable industrial experience plus a background with homebrewing. Must have a track record for meticulous attention to detail, strong work ethic, and an ability to work well with others on a team. Must have the ability to learn quickly and be hungry for skills development and career progression. Must have a willingness to make safety a priority. Must be physically capable of manual brewery and packaging processes typical of a small brewery as we have limited automation. Must be available to work Mon-Fri with occasional functions as needed on weekends. Participation at brewery/company events is assumed with these duties shared among all of our full-time staff. Must have a good driving record and the ability to fill in with deliveries on occasion if needed. This is a 40 hour/week salaried position.

    Compensation:
    Competitive salary based on experience, projected range of $33k-$39k (Assistant Brewer) and $46k-$60k (Head Brewer). Paid time off based on experience, plus paid days off for company holidays. Assistance with costs of healthcare coverage are available for the right candidate.
