When we make the transition from homebrewing to commercial brewing, we fear we will have a lot to learn. An interview with Steve of Beau’s All-Natural Brewing has only confirmed this. Needless to say, Jeff (our brewmaster) is worried. None of us has had any formal beer training. While we’d like to send at least Jeff to school, we are thinking it would also be wise to hire an old salty. Not necessarily an aging sailor, but someone who at least knows the ropes, and could step up as an assistant brewer.
While we won’t be hiring anyone until we become an actual brewery, we’d love to start developing relationships with some of these people now. Trouble is, we don’t know where they are (except in breweries). Joel already tried looking for an Assistant Brewer group on Facebook. (Good job, Joel. You’re always a value-add ) If anyone has any suggestions, shoot us an email.
Have a safe and beer-filled weekend!
