Brewer wanted
« on: July 14, 2015, 05:29:36 PM »
Oakshire brewing in Eugene OR is looking for a brewer.  If you're crazy enough to want to brew for a living, you couldn't do much better than working with these people.

I'm only about 5 things away from wanting to fight for this job. If it was a year from now so I could draw retirement, and someone offered me 2006 housing prices, and the company paid for endless chiropractic visits, and I was 20 years younger, and if I had any pro brewing experience...

You are so cool that even when you sit next to a fermenter reading a magazine ester production will be influenced in a positive way.

Hard to believe people make more flipping burgers or waiting tables than brewing...

But it is a glamorous job in the Craft beer industry.

$12 hour *2000 hours/year = $24,000/year. More supply than demand for Brewers.

My entry level job out of college in 1986 paid more than that.

$12 and maybe benefits is about as good as it gets for an entry-level brewing job, *and* you get to work with Denny?!
