    Job Announcement: Cellarman
    Tin Man Brewing Company is currently accepting applications for Cellarman. We are a micro-brewery in the start-up phase, and are currently in the middle of construction of our 20,000 square foot facility. We plan to hire for a start date in the middle of June, 2012.

    Located in Evansville, Indiana, our brewery sits on the edge of the three largest US craft beer supermarkets. We are well positioned to grow quickly in order to serve these markets using our unique brewing system and techniques. We are the first customer of the new High Efficiency Brewing System (HEBS) from IDD, which will allow us to brew very quickly and with a significant reduction in consumables.

    Evansville is a beautiful city located on the southern tip of Indiana on the Ohio river. With a newly renovated river walk and Main Street, it also has a new 11,000 seat arena, semi-pro hockey and baseball teams, a river boat casino, a thriving night life, many family-focused events, and boasts the second largest American street festival (next to Mardi Gras).

    Tin Man is different!
    We think outside of the box*when it comes to how to brew craft beer. We are currently implementing three key technologies that are revolutionary in and of themselves, but will change the way you are used to working. So the ideal candidate is an experienced professional cellarman, who is very good at thinking about the best, and most efficient way to work.

    We also believe that the best beer comes from those with the biggest heart and drive to create. Many assistants do not have the ability to express this in a production brewery, but we are different! We will have an Assistant/Cellarman line of beers that will be served in our tasting room. So the ideal candidate will also be driven to create unique beer.

    The perfect candidate will be at the beginning of their professional brewing career*and the salary will be commensurate with this level of experience. Candidates with an exemplary resume will be considered at their commensurate salaries.

    Review Process:
    We love homebrewers, however we are not yet accepting applications for brewers with no professional experience (don’t worry - we will in the future). We will be discarding from the consideration pool, any resumes that do not list the number of years of continuous full-time production (micro or brewpub) brewing experience within the first paragraph of the resume. If the experience is less than two years, list the number of months instead.

    After this has been met, we will review the application in order of our preferred skills and attributes. We like individualism and creativity, which is why we are not making you type everything over again into an online resume form (yuck . So use your cover letter to have a little freedom to be yourself. Use your resume to state the facts about your skills, education and work history.
