Head Brewer - Milwaukee, WI - Immediate Opening

16 Apr 2024 1:03 PM | Tim Pauly

Join the Broken Bat Brewing Co. Team Today!

We are actively looking for a Head Brewer to immediately join the Broken Bat team! Our previous brewer is moving on to a new career opportunity, and there is an opening available to take over a 20BBL Brewhouse with a Cask V5 Canning Line for the right person and would love to hear from you! Having just celebrated our 7 Year Anniversary in April, we currently operate out of a 14,000 square foot stand-alone facility in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee, WI. We have a spacious 215 person taproom that is open 7 days a week with up to 16 tap lines, a separate 225 person private event space upstairs with an additional 8 tap lines, an indoor wiffleball field, and a recently updated 20BBL QTS Brewhouse, purchased brand new in 2021 all under the same roof. We currently produce around 1,250 barrels of beer per year, with a much higher capacity available, and are looking for the right person to get us there. 

Experience and Pay

Previous brewing experience is required – no specific amount of time, but references and/or a product portfolio would be a huge plus, with a minimum starting salary of $52,000; negotiable based on experience and qualifications. Added benefits are negotiable for the right candidate as well. 15 days paid time off as well as Holiday pay are available; PTO days are negotiable based on experience and qualifications. 

Expectations and Requirements

The job is expected to work 5 days a week, Monday – Friday, with the extremely occasional need to work on a night or weekend if a particular beer needs to be attended to. No more than 40 hours per work week are expected, and your time is absolutely yours once you leave the premise. All of the standard cleaning and safety expectations and SOPs of a brew house apply; must be comfortable carrying and moving items that weigh more than 50 pounds, and upon hire, must obtain a forklift safety certification. While we do have established brands and beers in place, we are also searching for a brewer who is looking to put their mark on the craft beer industry and are actively looking for someone to continue to help shape and mold our product portfolio here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

If this opportunity is of interest to you, please reach out to Tim – Owner/Operator - via email, tim@brokenbatbrewery.com, with a brief resume and cover letter, I look forward to hearing from you!
