Brewer – Tin Whistle Brewing

Full Time
Posted 4 months ago

Founded in 1995, The Tin Whistle Brewing Company was the first craft brewery in the South Okanagan. From the beginning, Tin Whistle has been dedicated to producing great beer that represents the Okanagan region. Tin Whistle is one of only six breweries in the country to win two gold medals at the 2023 Canada Beer Cup. We are also the first carbon-neutral brewery in B.C.

We have just added our second BC Liquor Stores listing, and we’ve hired a dynamo of a sales manager to drive growth. That’s where you come in! We are seeking a full-time, permanent Brewer to support this growth. The Brewer reports to both owners and the Head Brewer. Duties will be shared between brewing and packaging. Your key to success will be bringing structure to enable you to hit aggressive production targets with ease.

We brew high quality, unfiltered, unpasteurized, beer, operating both legacy and cutting-edge equipment. We have a 20hL brewhouse. We take pride in our growth, and we take pride in the growth of our employees. When not in pedal-to-the-medal production, we try new things on our state-of-the-art Blickmann pilot system. We encourage creativity. We can our beer in-house on a Cask canning line.
