    Senior Brewer

    The Senior Brewer will be responsible for all operations in the brewery from Grain to Glass. This includes helping organize primary ingredient inventory, brewing beer, beer transfers, packaging, and all tank and line cleaning and sanitation. This role will report directly to the Head Brewer, and work closely with the Head Brewer on operational efficiencies and recipe development.

    Hours will generally be 8 to 10 hours a day, 4 to 5 days a week.

    Wage will be $24/hr plus gratuities (average gratuities are $4-$7/hr)

    We also offer a Health and Dental Plan.

    Job Description
    The Senior Brewer’s duties will include all of the following (plus any other tasks they may be asked to perform by the Head Brewer, General Manager and Ownership):

    • Making beer on our 15bbl brewhouse. Our beer is brewed to the highest standard and requires meticulous attention to detail. Brewing tasks include milling in grain, stirring and mixing the mash, maintaining exact temperatures throughout the process, boiling and adding hops to the wort, and cleaning and sanitizing all liquid transfer lines.
    Quality Control:
    • Quality control starts at the beginning of the brewing process and is not complete until the beer is in the customer’s hand. Duties include measuring cleanliness of the entire brewing process, using the lab microscope to count and test yeast cell health, measuring CO2 levels in the beer, and testing beers using our library stock.
    Cleaning and Maintenance:
    • One of the major tasks for this position is cleaning and maintaining the entire brewery operation. All beer must be made and stored in a completely sanitized environment, and there is absolutely no room for error. Cleaning is a constant part of brewing, where we must clean and sanitize all brewing equipment, all fermenters and brite tanks, all kegs, and all transfer lines.
    • Though the brewing process will be the main focus of this job, the Senior Brewer will also be expected to help in the packaging department.
    • Gladstone packages beer in kegs (50L and 20L) and cans (473ml). This process happens after our Quality Control systems have given the beer a passing grade for consumption. Kegging requires cleaning and sanitizing all beer transfer lines and filling kegs on our manual keg filling machine. The kegs are then stored at 3-4 degrees Celsius in our walk in coolers while they await transport to a customer. Canning requires the same cleaning steps as kegging, and utilizes our semi-automatic canning machine where we package and palletize our finished cans for sale.
