We are hiring! Seeking a brewer to join our team


About us:

Canopy Beer Co is a brewery and tap room in Herne Hill, SE24. Established in 2014, our focus is on making accessible, drinkable beers. We produce about 2,500 hectolitres per annum on our 12 barrel kit and package into cask, keg, bottle, and can. All brewing and packaging takes place on-site in our railway arch facility.

The position:

We are looking for an experienced Brewer to join our team. This is a full-time position (8am-5pm or 9am-6pm Monday to Friday), and occasional weekend work is required.

As a brewer joining our small team you will be a key part of:

·      Ordering stock (brewing ingredients, packaging materials)

·      Brewing, transfer of wort and beer.

·      Recipe development in conjunction with the Head Brewer

·      Quality Control, sending samples to laboratory etc.

·      Cleaning

·      Gravity readings

·      Maintaining accurate brewing records

·      Ensuring HMRC records are up to date

·      Packaging into cask, keg, bottle and can

·      Liaising with the warehouse manager to ensure sound cellar practices are followed at all times

You’ll report to the Head Brewer. We’re a small team so everyone is expected to be pro-active in looking for any jobs that need doing.

We are looking for a brewer, but also you will be a brewery ambassador excited about our brewery and enthusiastic about promoting our brand at meet-the-brewer type events and in representing Canopy at trade shows.

At least two years brewing experience is essential. GCB qualifications or equivalent would be an advantage, but not essential. Fork Lift Truck driving qualifications would be an advantage but not essential.

Who we’re looking for:

You’ll love beer, drinking it, designing it, making it, improving it. Some days it’s quiet and others you’ll be run off your feet but there is always something that needs doing. You’ll be adaptable, enthusiastic, trustworthy and willing to muck in where needed. You need to be physically fit and able to manual handle safely.

There is plenty of scope to bring your ideas and grow with the business.

Pay dependant on experience. Other benefits included.
