Deschutes Brewerye u, wnapologetically make a lot of award-winning, damn tasty beer (over 250,000 barrels per year)! We are currently looking for a Production Brewer to join our team at our facility in beautiful Bend, Oregon! The brewer position is responsible for the brewing process for both Deschutes Brewery and Boneyard beers! This includes preparation of raw materials, through the brewing and fermentation processes, and up to clarifying beer and making ready for packaging.

This is a full-time position with a typical schedule of working 12 hours per shift, 3 days per week (3/12’s) and rotating day and night shift, and days of the week with the entire production brewing team every 6 weeks.

The starting compensation wage for this role depends on your previous experience. Base wages when joining this team start at $18.94/hour for candidates who are newer to production brewing and we offer a career path up to $28.96/hour for our employees who successfully complete our training program and hold several years of experience in our brewery. Additionally, we offer a $3.00 per hour night shift differential for any hours worked between 6pm and 6am and more opportunities for wage increases are also associated with cross-training, specialty licenses and promotional opportunities.

Brewing is a tough but rewarding career. There are often long hours, with very physical work in a variety of temperatures. But, as brewers, we are tasked with creating liquids that inspire, satiate, and bring joy to the drinker. Our work is important. We create liaisons. Liaisons that bridge the end of the workday with play, spur new relationships and deepen existing. Liaisons that bend newness to comfort, stress to relaxation and differing opinions to productive debate. All that, plus, don’t forget we create liquids that excite the taste buds and turn meals into feasts. How we accomplish all this reveals significant effort. The hours are long and the work is hard. It’s a physical process and the best beer can only be made if the ideal schedule for the beer, not the brewer, is followed. We need someone with a strong work ethic, attention to detail and a curiosity and openness to improve not just the products and process but also themselves. With these traits, you’ll be ready to take on the following

Core duties and responsibilities:

  • Assures optimum beer quality. Does so by following standard operating procedures (SOP), filing non-conformities, suggesting process improvements, staying abreast of brewing communications and process changes, and attending brewers’ meetings as schedule allows.
  • Manages daily tasks to meet production needs, including cleaning and sanitizing equipment, reading and following production schedules, operation of centrifuges, yeast harvesting and disposal, bottle conditioning, and ensuring finished beer meets specifications for packaging
  • Documentation and data entry for all processes in the brewhouse and cellar
  • Coordinate work with other departments (brewhouses, cellars, packaging, QA and warehouse)
  • Engage in the never-ending quest of cultivating the most remarkable guest experiences through brewing damn tasty beers
  • Constantly challenge the stuck, boring, mundane. And don’t just challenge, but bring the solutions and initiative to make a difference.
  • Get involved with company-wide initiatives.
  • Continually gain knowledge of the craft beer world and share that knowledge.

Requirements of the position:

  • High school diploma, GED or equivalent required
  • A graduate of a fermentation science, engineering, general science or other related field is preferred
  • Previous production brewing experience is preferred
  • Able to frequently lift 55lbs to approximately waist height and tilt up to 200lbs
