    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.

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).
