Brewer apprenticeship

Make beer either at specific stages of production or in its entirety, from ingredient intake to final packaging

The brewer is a diverse role that encompasses different tasks and responsibilities depending on the employer, which can range from large-scale producers to micro-breweries. As well as beer production, you may be expected to understand and take responsibility for compliance with relevant regulatory requirements. You may also have a role in the design and development of new brands and will need to react to information related to the quality and consistency of beer at various stages of production and once in the final package. During the brewer apprenticeship you may have input in the selection, design and operation of equipment and technology implemented within the brewery, which is required for processing of ingredients and beer production. Finally, a brewer may be required to take part in sales activities such as product launches or beer tasting sessions.
