Situation Vacant

I need some more Brewing Team Members for my brewery.

 Need Apply

  • Are you a brewer or do you want to be?
  • Do you want a job at a successful, fast-growing brewery which wins lots of awards?
  • Do you get a sense of achievement from learning and developing in a brewery making commercially excellent beers?
  • Do you like working in a team to brew lots of consistent beer?
  • Do you like hard work on shifts?
  • Do you have a good understanding of science and are you interested in applying it to brewing?
  • Do you or do you want to live in Cornwall?
  • Are you happy to commit to a few years of personal development before you start calling yourself a brewer?
  • Do you favour the balanced and consistent over the extreme and outrageous?

 Need not Apply

  • Are you a failed chef, artist, musician...?
  • Do you like talking about beer more than brewing it?
  • Do you want to make up exciting recipes using crazy ingredients?
  • Do you think 10,000 pints is a lot of beer?
  • Do you want to spend your life in a 2 barrel brewery inflicting olfactory armageddon on people while telling them they only don’t like your beers because they have been brainwashed by the multinational corporations’ media machines?
  • Do you think Mikkeller and Struise are highly-skilled brewers?
  • Do you think you can learn all you need to know about brewing by reading books published by US craft brewers?
  • Do you think the palate of the future drinker will be based on hop-forward, barrel-aged, sour and extra dark beers? 
If you are interested please e-mail the brewery.

I don't really meet any of the need apply criteria being basically bone idle, apathetic and a skiver but I don't disqualify as I am not an awesome craft beer nutter.

This has left me perplexed. I could apply not being disqualified but would be unlikely to make the grade if anyone else of any calibre applied.

Is it worth a punt for the free grog?

Lacking aspects that preclude you from a job is not quite the same as being suited to it Cookie. I'm sure Hitler had a CRB check but that did not make him an ideal candidate for the position of a social worker.

We are looking for someone with the need apply criteria.

"Do you think 10,000 pints is a lot of beer?"

depends on the context...I'd not want to try drinking that many on a Friday night!

Stuart, I told you not to wear that jumper in public. People will use it to represent a dork.

Stuart Howe said...

It felt like I did on Saturday Morning Andy

. that's not what you said when you knitted it for me Mum

Stuart Ross said...

I don't qualify for either. I'll stay where I am.

I wouldn’t expect you to be attracted by this position for a minute Stu. You are making a good living brewing beer you love and receiving the adulation of your peers.

It is those who haven’t done the hard yards in terms of their development as a brewer and are only content making "in" beers for "in" people who will be looking for another creative outlet when the market for extreme tasting beers implodes.

Brilliant... Where do I send my CV...

Hope you are well, mate. When are you coming to visit in NZ?


Stuart Howe said...

2014 for a visit Kelly and I'm expecting you to brew a world class triple imperial oak-aged amber stout in readiness for my arrival.

i love brewing crazy extreme beers! my latest one was a Belgian style "quadrupel". i used four strains of yeast and some some american C-hops.

Stuart Howe said...

Sounds like a interesting beer Jon. I hope it is consistent, balanced, subtle, designed to partner good food. I also hope you don't expect to fund a successful commercial enterprise on the basis the sales of that beer alone.
