Old Ox Brewery in Ashburn, VA is looking for a brewer to join our team. The ideal candidate will have a year or two of experience working as a brewer or cellarperson 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 have a second taproom in Middleburg, VA and are in the process of opening a 5BBL innovation brewery there as well.
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. This position will be primarily at our production facility in Ashburn, but our plan is to give all of our brewers the opportunity to spend time at the Middleburg brewery.
-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 165lb, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with resume and cover letter.
