  • Assistant Brewer need in Minnesota

    We are looking to hire a Cellar Person/Assistant Brewer as soon as possible. We operate a 20bbl production brewery with a small kitchen on the North Shore of Lake Superior in beautiful Grand Marais. There is a detailed job description below but for the most part the position is exactly what you would expect for an assistant brewer/cellar person. Tank CIP, transfering beer, warehouse work, canning etc... Ideally the right candidate will be capable of wort production and lab work as well.
    The quality of life here is excellent given all the opportunity for outdoor recreation. If you are into the outdoors and this is one of the best places to live and to brew. Snowmobiling, skiing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and hiking are all incredibly accessible and enjoyed throughout the year. As with most breweries we are in a period of growth so there is lots of opportunity to move up the ladder and gain creative control.
    Pay depends on experience however we are willing to train an entry level candidate under the right circumstances.
    Please contact me directly with any questions (843) 754-2654
