We’re Hiring: Brewer

Old Ox Brewery in Ashburn, VA is looking for a brewer to join our team as we expand into a second location.  The ideal candidate will have a year or two experience working as a brewer in a commercial brewery, but we are also willing to train the right enthusiastic candidate.

Old Ox Brewery is currently a thriving production brewery with a 30BBL system and a cellaring capacity of 6,000BBLs/yr.  We are beginning construction on a new taproom and 5BBL innovation brewery in Middleburg, VA slated to open Spring/Summer 2019.  

This is a great opportunity to combine the satisfaction of dialing beers in on the big system with the ability to pursue small, creative, one-off projects on the small system.  All of our brewers do all of the jobs, so everyone is involved in brewing, cellaring, packaging, barrels, recipe development, cleaning, etc. We believe this aids in cooperation to keep the brewery running efficiently and helps keep things interesting for you.  Our plan is that all of the brewers will eventually spend time at both our production and our innovation breweries.

Preferred qualifications:
-1+ years of experience working as a commercial brewer or other experience working in the beer industry
-(If you have no beer experience, please tell us how your other experiences have prepared you to contribute to the brewery)
-Degree from an intensive brewer training program or in a related field such as microbiology, mechanical engineering, etc.
-Experience running a Wild Goose Canning Line
-Experience with barrel-aged, sour/funky, or other experimental beers
-Efficient time management, strong work ethic, and empathy
-Exceptional organizational skills and a desire to optimize
-Understanding of mechanical systems and facilities maintenance
-Ability to meet the physical demands of brewery life (standing for long periods, working in hot/cold/wet environments, working with chemicals and machinery, lifting up to 60lb, manipulating up to 175lb, etc)
-Love of beer!

The brewer will report directly to our Head Brewer and will be actively involved in all facets of day-to-day operation.

Please send an email to [email protected] with resume and cover letter.  

Old Ox Brewery is a family owned and operated brewery. We’re looking for a candidate who can make an immediate impact and become a part of the extended Old Ox family. We are an equal opportunity employer.
