Most breweries where you will actually learn anything substantial won't take volunteers anymore. Too much of a liability. But you might could get get a part time evening job washing kegs and cleaning drains scrubbing floors and polishing tanks. I'm about to look for someone to do just that.
What is the liability, recipes, or?
I wonder why I would "employ" someone who's willing to tell me up front that their labor is worthless.

It would take at least 70k plus 6 weeks vacation and med/dental/vision... not to mention at least 15% additional into a Roth IRA. If you could afford that, you sure as heck wouldn't spend it on a used up old fart like me, lol.

Volunteers may not be covered under insurance plans.I amazed anytime I see friends post on Facebook or the like about the 8 hours they "volunteered" bottling at a brewery. They are a damn business and you just increased their bottom line without any compensation other than a case of beer on the way out the door. Is it only me that thinks these people are suckers?
