Winter/Spring 2014 Brewing Internship
The Neshaminy Creek Brewing team is growing. Maybe you’re our next team member?
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 less than two years since opening we have reached nearly 3600 barrels of total production and started bottling beer for more widespread distribution throughout the Philadelphia, Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, and New Jersey markets this past Spring. Operating on a 15 barrel direct fire JV Northwest brew house, we currently have 420 barrels of fermentation and lagering capacity, and look to add addition fermentation and lagering capacity in the coming months as well as an automated canning line to help meet the growing demand for our draft and packaged offerings.
We’re currently accepting resumes and interviewing to fill an unpaid Brewing Internship position for Winter/Spring 2014, 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.
We have a desire to hire and promote from within, and have done so and aim to continue growing our team of dedicated, hardworking brewers over the coming months.
Beer geeks and snobs need not apply.
If you think you’ve got what it takes wrestle 558 gallons of wort, please forward a cover letter and resume in PDF format to neshaminycreekbrewing[at]yahoo.com. Cover letters and resumes in any other format will not be accepted. All applicants must apply by Friday, January 24th and will be contacted directly for an interview if considered. Internship starts the first week of February, but schedule can be adjusted for the appropriate candidate.
Thank you, and good luck!
