We are a small 10 BBL brewery in Northwest New Jersey opening our new location in Hampton Township (Newton Mailing address). We have had our growth limited by the small size of our current location but have built a beautiful new 7000+ square foot building opening in June. We have an immediate opening for an assistant brewer looking to grow with us as we expand into our new building. The position reports to the head brewer and co-owner Heide. With expansion we expect to have need for an additional assistant brewer as well in mid to late Summer. We are willing to train you to brew but ideally the right candidate(s) will be people who at least have homebrewing skills and an understanding of fermentation processes, cross contamination issues, proper cleaning and sanitation. Love of craft beer and attention to the details that ensure a high quality craft beer is produced is a must. We would like you to be, or become, someone we can eventually trust to understand and run the brewing process with limited supervision freeing Heide to run operations and test batch new beers. As with any small company you must be a team player willing to do any and all tasks needed to get the job done, just like us.
