Welcome to the NWT Brewing Company - Nestled between the wonder of the aurora borealis and the rugged nature of the northern frontier, our little brewing outpost is one of a kind. Located in the spirited town of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories we are the northernmost brewpub in Canada.
As Brewer Brewer at the NWT Brewing Company, you are responsible for supporting the Head Brewer with all production tasks including, but not limited to: brewing, cellaring, packaging, cleaning, QA/QC, and routine maintenance.
You are responsible for coordinating with the Head Brewer who will direct your weekly tasks based on the Production Schedule, which is subject to changes and fluctuations and requires you to be flexible. An ideal applicant would be a hardworking, dedicated, and self-motivated individual with the ability to synthesize information and thoughtfully troubleshoot problems. They would be detail oriented and be focused on product quality throughout the brewing process and display a positive attitude and be a role model for the brewery and the industry as a whole.
We offer a casual work environment, vacation, health benefits (coming 2022), company discounts on merchandise, NWT Brewing beer and food, as well as team building, social events, and an entrepreneurial and growing environment.
