Asst. Brewer Opening in CO
« on: July 11, 2011, 08:39:23 AM »
I hope no one minds the blatant advertising, but I thought I'd cross-post this in case any home brewers are looking to go pro and willing to relocate. Anyone who's interested can either contact me directly or send an email to the address in the ProBrewer listing:

Silverton Brewery in beautiful Silverton, CO has an immediate opening for an Assistant Brewer. This is not a prestige position in a showpiece brewhouse – you will work long and irregular hours lifting heavy objects in hot, cold, and wet conditions, with minimal compensation beyond a cold beer at the end of a hard day. But for a qualified candidate the job offers the opportunity to be immersed in all aspects of operating a small brewpub, from recipe development and wort production through fermentation and yeast management to filtration, kegging, and canning. All while living in one of the most pristine outdoor recreation areas in the United States.

Candidates must have extensive knowledge of the brewing process, with professional brewing experience preferred. Creativity and commitment are required. If interested, please email a resume and references to management@silvertonbrewing.com.

Cheers!

Sean Terrill
Head Brewer
Silverton Brewing Co.

You make it sound so attractive. ;D

I let a friend of mine know, I don't know if he wants to relocate but he's looking for this type of job and working part time at a brewery now.

I can attest to the beauty of the area.  Man I'd love to live up there.

A little birdie told me there might be lay-offs at the end of this quarter due to the medicaid and medicare cutbacks. Might be in the market come October...

Maybe the Siebel Institute is an option. ;)

It's all about getting the right kind of people to respond. 

I can also attest to the perfectness of the town.  If I were single I'd move there in a heartbeat.  Sean I wouldn't know you from Adam, but assuming you're a good guy to work with I'd say this is the ideal job for someone young, mobile and interested in a fantasticly rewarding/low paying job.  Good luck in your search.  cheers, j

Good Luck Sean!

If I were a young single guy in search of becoming a brewer...you would be getting an email from me.  ;)

That's some terrible conditions. Sounds like you need to hire an assistant or three Keith.  :-\

I saw that yesterday on PB (and thought about shooting you an e-mail last night when I noticed it was your name) ...and remember reading and thinking about applying for the same ad you landed your gig with.

Been applying for a few gigs on the west coast and had a couple phone interviews last week that I should hear about in a few days...

Dude, it rained here today. Craziest thing I've ever seen. People walking around looking up like they weren't sure what it was.

Is there a telecommuting option? I can send you a telepresence robot.

Sure, but if you invent a robot that can climb ladders, lift and carry 75 lb, work on wet floors without slipping, use a microscope, and work 10 hours without a charge, we're all pretty much out of jobs anyway. ;)
