5 barrel craft brewery in vintage sewing factory

Textile Brewing Co. is hiring for an assistant brewer position with an excellent opportunity for growth and advancement. No prior professional brewing experience is required but it is highly recommended.  Familiarity with the craft beer scene is expected, home brewers looking to make the jump are also encouraged to apply.

The ideal candidate is a one who has commercial brewing experience, a desire to learn, and a passion for creativity. We are creating a brewing environment that encourages fresh, new and creative ideas. The brewer we seek must also have:

• The ability to work unsupervised, independently, and to utilize critical thinking while also knowing when to call for backup

• The ability to lift 55 pounds overhead

• The ability to work on their feet for long periods of time and work in refrigerated coolers as well as an occasionally warm and humid brewhouse.

• A flexible schedule that may include some weekends or evenings.

• A basic familiarity with computers and the internet to allow for interactions with our production/inventory management software

• An uncompromising attention to detail.

The assistant brewer will report directly to our owner/head brewer and will be involved with almost every aspect of our day-to-day production operations. General duties will include raw materials handling, wort handling, yeast handling, spent grain handling, product transfers, bright beer handling, clarification and carbonation, finished beer monitoring, equipment and vessel cleaning, keg cleaning, and general sanitation of our facilities.

From time to time, our assistant brewer may also have other duties as assigned such as keg delivery in our company vehicle, taproom shifts, or marketing related responsibilities (beer dinner or tap takeover attendance, beer festival attendance, etc.) This position is an hourly position, the hourly pay rate will be competitive and determined based on experience and qualifications. We anticipate this position initially will offer 30-40 hours per week with the possibility for some overtime hours if business demands require it. It is our goal and expectation that this position will develop into a full time opportunity as our business grows.

Textile Brewing Co. is a craft brewery in Dyersville, Iowa. We are scheduled to open in June, 2019 with the exact date yet to be determined. We are located in a 113 year old building that was home to a sewing factory for the past 110 years. The building has a rich history and presents an amazing palate from which to create and present spectacular beer offerings. Textile Brewing was willed into existence and brought to life by its female owner and her brewer husband, a passionate home brewer turned professional. We will be brewing on a 5 bbl brewing system with multiple fermenters and brite tanks. We will also be using a 1 bbl system for small batch seasonal and experimental offerings.  We plan to serve from kegs and brite tanks. We will also be self-distributing on a limited basis. Triptych is an equal opportunity employer. If you believe this position is a fit for you, please email a cover letter introducing yourself and a resume to tom@textilebrews.com.
