Join the Team

EXPERIENCED BREWER WANTED

Malt The Brewery is a British-made 10BBL microbrewery, shop & tasting room located on a dairy farm in Prestwood, right at the heart of the Chiltern Hills (AONB).

You’ll be joining us at an exciting and important time in our history. Before the Pandemic, we’d just completed a local crowd funding campaign, which gained us 54 local investors. We’re now getting back to our transformation plans, including the creation of some new roles and the installation of some new production equipment and new processes.
We’re looking for an experienced commercial brewer to lead the Brewing Operations Function and join our Leadership Team in a new & important role. You’ll be responsible for all aspects of the brewing process – raw materials, wort production, yeast management, fermentation, racking, packaging, QA, SOPs, cleaning, detailed record keeping & HACCP.

You won’t be alone though! This role is an important part of our leadership team and comes with a real opportunity to help shape the future of the business.

We believe the whole team should share the long-term rewards as we work hard together. Therefore, once you’ve got your feet under the brewers desk (in our new office) and shown us what you can do, there’s a real chance to ‘get some skin in the game’ with share options*. This will be as equally important to you as your salary. style="text-align: center;">

As a commercially minded & technically astute brewer, you’ll have the opportunity to lead a new program of short-run brewing, to help us try-out new ideas, establish new routes to market and attract new segments.

Part of ‘The Malt’ experience comes from our close relationship with our consumers and local community, so you’ll be welcomed into a growing social scene in the busy Tap-Room, which recently doubled in size.

Your big opportunity

If you’re an experienced brewer with a proven track record, this is your chance to put your stamp on something, see the fruits of your graft, join a high-performing team of great people AND join us on the next stage of this exciting voyage.
