Since we first set foot in the Discovery city, a continual theme has run through our fledgling operations there; the incredible welcome we have received from the people of Ohio and the Columbus area. It blew us away from day one onwards. A related theme is that we cannot wait to get our brewery operational to repay that kindness with freshly-brewed BrewDog craft beer.
And if you can help us out with that, we want to hear from you.
We are super-psyched to announce that we are hosting a two-day Open House at our Columbus facility on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th December for anyone interested in working for BrewDog USA.
If you would like to attend, please register by checking out this link!
Each day will have a different theme as we look to begin filling the dozens of vacancies we have for our American brewery. On Monday 5th we are concentrating on our BrewDog Taproom so are looking for attendees who would love the chance to serve beers and food to our guests when DogTap Columbus is complete, as well as other front of house, kitchen and positions related to retail. Our Director of BrewDog Bars David McDowall will be on hand to meet those keen to join us!
On Tuesday 6th we would love to be visited by those with production experience in the brewing industry or those looking to work for BrewDog in the following roles: senior brewers, brewers, lab technicians, lab managers, packaging managers and operators, engineers, warehouse operatives and forklift drivers. Head of Production Tim Hawn will be on hand for the day – our state of the art 200HL brewery needs the very best to staff it – if that’s you, come and see us!
To give us an idea of potential numbers, anyone who would like to attend our jobs event should first head to this link to select a session. If you read those paragraphs above and didn’t see a job for you but would love to work for BrewDog USA in another area, then don’t worry! Between 4pm and 7pm on both Monday and Tuesday we are also hosting special open sessions – if you have a skillset in another field we can use, register and simply head on down.
We often get asked what working for BrewDog is like, and the inauguration of BrewDog Columbus is the perfect example. You have to live and breathe craft beer, of course, but over and above that you would need to embrace every aspect of the BrewDog charter. As we are building our American brewhouse from the ground up (literally) this is a once in a lifetime chance to be a part of something at the outset that will go on to become something truly incredible.
Although the individual jobs are highly specialised and focused, with the size of our Ohio project everyone who ends up working for BrewDog USA will have to be able to help out where needed. So we are majoring in the enthusiasm and adaptability of potential employees, and their famed American ‘can do’ attitude! For general tips on the personalities that fit our culture, check this blog post on how to ace a BrewDog interview.
We won’t be interviewing in the Open House dates in December though, the event is for those who would like to introduce to us their skills and discover a bit more about our Columbus plans. For anyone who would like to join us, then head to the link to register your interest. We always say that the two things we care about most are our beer and our people, and if you would like to become one of them, then be sure and come see us on either the 5th or 6th of December.
