Apply for this Job

Lost Coast is looking for shift brewers for our brewery!

This is a great opportunity for someone with brewing experience in a smaller brewery or pub that wants to learn production brewing in a new state-of-the-art facility (degree or certificate in brewing REQUIRED; several years of practical brewing experience will also be considered). You will hone your skills to brew in a fast paced, medium-sized production brewery. Starting in the cellar, you will be shown how we care for the fermenting beer, use of the centrifuge, dry hopping using our hopinator, and cleaning procedures so that you can be trained on our procedures and apparatus. When you are competent in the cellar, you will learn to operate our cutting-edge brewhouse equipment.

The brewery is filled with a variety of machinery and conditions can get both loud and wet, as well as vary in temperature. Candidates must be able to remain in a stationary position for long amounts of time, reposition body to work in different spaces, lift/move up to 75 lbs frequently (or more, with mechanical or physical help) and traverse/ascend/descend work spaces at varying heights.

Lost Coast Brewery was founded in 1989 and has a proud history of making quality beers. We moved into our new brewery in 2015 - a 77,000 sq. ft. facility with a 120 barrel brewhouse. Since our move, we have been busily putting out new beers; in fact, we recently installed a 10 barrel pilot brewery to drive innovation! We are growing and are in need of good brewers that can continue our history of fine beers and help ramp up production. Current projects include a new canning line and barrel-aged beers.

As a brewer, you will be walking into a beautiful new facility that is well managed with diligent personnel. Lost Coast Brewery is located on the beautiful Redwood Coast. We have mild temperatures all year round, so it is a great area for outdoor activities. The area has a rich history from a varied heritage, and in modern times has been described as a mix of “nature and culture with a small-town feel”.

We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package, rewarding work environment, and growth for committed professionals.
