Eddyline Brewery is entering an exciting new phase of growth as it moves its operations from its current location into a new warehouse facility with great sea views.  Our existing brewhouse will be retained as we bring in 4000L fermenters and brite tanks while we plan for a new and larger brewhouse. We are adding a counterpressure canning line due to arrive late April. Majority of our sales are from aggressively hopped IPAs and Pale Ales but make a line of lagers and will experiment with new beers and styles to be featured in our restaurant, pub, and tap accounts.

We are ideally looking for two production brewers.  There will be multiple advancement opportunities as we grow our sales.  

The production brewer will be responsible to produce high quality beers from established recipes by performing basic functions in the brewhouse based on sound scientific brewing principles.  There will be opportunities to work with owners together to develop new recipes.
