I volunteer at a local craft brewery from time to time. I was a regular/mug club member for a couple of years and got to know the head brewer a bit. After I was infected with the homebrewing virus, my insatiable desire to learn anything and everything about making beer prompted me to ask if they ever needed help in the brewery. The reply I got was "If you mean the work for pizza and beer kind of help then sure, we need help" Its sometimes fun, sometimes a learning experience, but always hard work. Dont expect to have much to do with the brewing process, at least not for a while. Youll probably learn more than you ever wanted to know about packaging, bottling lines and stacking heavy things for hours on end. Some days you may not even have an opportunity to ask questons. When you do, try to make sure they are well thought out and ask them at an appropriate time.
If you're a hard worker and not a giant pain in the ass they'll probably ask you to come back.
