Do you stay up late at night thinking about malted barley, Calcium sulfate, and Humulus lupulus? Do the words attenuation and sanitization get your adrenaline pumping? Have you ever broken into a cold sweet just thinking about double pre-evac bottling lines?
Then you may just have what it takes to be a professional Brewer.
Having opened in June of 2012, Neshaminy Creek Brewing is one of the Philadelphia area’s newest and fastest growing production breweries. In the nine short months since opening we have reached nearly 2000 barrels in production and just recently started bottling beer for more widespread distribution throughout the Philadelphia, Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, and New Jersey markets. Operating on a 15 barrel direct fire JV Northwest brew house, we currently have 285 barrels of fermentation and lagering capacity, and look to add addition fermentation and lagering capacity in the coming months to help meet the growing demand for our draft and bottled offerings.
We’re currently accepting resumes and interviewing to fill an unpaid Brewing Internship position for Spring 2013, with the opportunity and possibility of full-time employment consideration following. Ideal candidates should have a broad range of brewing experience, including but not limited to any of the following: homebrewing, brew school certification from Siebel, UC Davis, or the American Craft Brewers Guild, four year college degree program with a focus on beer or commerical beverage production, a college degree in General Science, Biology, or Chemistry, BJCP judge certification, or previous brewery work experience.
Canidates must be able to commit 16 hours a week (Monday through Friday), and occasional weekends to working both inside and outside the brewery. You must be self-motivated, determined, hardworking, and think quickly on your feet. Brewery work is back breaking, long hour days, rarely spent staring at a glass of beer judging it for it’s qualities and waxing poetic about the times. This is hard, demanding work, but also very rewarding.
Beer geeks and snobs need not apply.
