Brewer & Assistant Brewer Positions

26 Sep 2023 4:59 PM | Anonymous

We are hiring for TWO positions. A Brewer and an Assistant Brewer!

Brewers and Assistant Brewers are the main cogs in the production machine at Tyranena Brewing Company. Our optimal applicants are both experienced workhorses and ambitious organizers; must love managing a full day of dynamic tasks and be eager to learn more about the craft beer industry. Some craft brewing experience needed… but training in our standard operating procedures and high standards is provided. Leave bad brewing habits at the door!

Neither position is glamorous and, as all brewery work does, requires more cleaning than one ever thought possible... But, in return, the successful candidates will be trained to conquer all brewing and packaging processes performed at our facility.

We're looking for a hardworking individual to become an integral and long-term member of our team.

  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills; ability to multitask
  • Must be able to adapt to changes in the work environment and manage competing demands


The noise level in the work environment is moderate to loud most of the time. Temperatures vary seasonally in work areas. Brewery personnel regularly handle hazardous materials, encounter hot water, steam and pressurized vessels. They also often come in contact with broken glass and wet floors while working in close proximity to moving mechanical parts. The work environment involves exposure to potentially dangerous materials and situations that require following detailed safety precautions (such as wearing respirators, handling hazardous materials and working with industrial machinery).


This is a physically demanding job. Ability to lift 55 lbs. repeatedly and move 165 lbs. Ability to stoop, kneel, crawl, climb and work in tight spaces. Ability to manipulate tri-clamps, pull and stack hoses up to 2.5’ diameter and 100 feet long. Tolerate outside summer/winter temperature and inclement weather conditions. Ability to stand and walk for long periods of time (up to 10 hours).


This position requires the use of standard office equipment (telephone, copier, fax, personal computer, etc.), equipment with relatively simple operating procedures (microscopes, lab equipment, hand tools, etc.), and equipment with involved operating procedures (power tools, filters, pumps, brewing equipment, forklifts, etc.).


Full-time, 9 am – 5 pm, generally Monday through Friday


Wages, depending on experience and the position (Brewer or Assistant Brewer) fall within the range of $16-$22/hour, with overtime when required. Both positions offer a generous benefits package consisting of health, life, dental, vision and long-term disability insurance, paid vacation, paid holidays and matching IRA.
