  • Cellar Person for Beverage Contract Manufacturing

    • At CMC, our cellarperson is responsible for duties concerning the mixing of customer recipes, from energy drinks to Spirits based cocktails. Beverage quality can be affected greatly by processes in the cellar, so ensuring quality and integrity is the cellarperson's main focus.
    • Cleaning, sanitizing, and conditioning tanks are two of the primary responsibilities, as well as product transfers from tank to tank, with a focus on using a slow, deliberate manner that emphasizes aseptic quality. The cellarperson is also responsible for monitoring recipe details (temperature, gravity, pH, etc), cooling and conditioning schedules of products, and carbonating to proper levels. In addition, the cellarperson cleans and sanitizes product lines, hoses, other equipment, and maintains cleanliness in the general working environment of the cellar.
    • Other duties of the cellarperson include cleaning the floors, outsides of tanks, miscellaneous parts, floor drains, filtration items, lab area, cellar racks, containers, and cooler. The cellarperson also provides support to the operations director and is expected to communicate regularly and effectively with other staff to ensure all cellaring responsibilities are fulfilled safely, effectively, efficiently, and accurately. No job is too big or too small for our cellarperson to complete. The cellarperson should expect to work full days, up to 12 hours in a shift if necessary depending on the production schedule (we currently work 4 days a week, 10 hour shifts). Overtime may be worked as needed if management allows. The cellarperson is an hourly, at-will employee supervised by the Director of Operations.
