Looking for a Cellarperson/Assistant Brewer!
Who is The Booth?
Before becoming the first Asian craft brewery to operate in the US last year, The Booth started as a small pizza pub in Seoul, Korea in 2013. Its three founders at the time were still working full time as doctor, financial analyst, and journalist. But with their love of craft beer and the ambition to create a “booth” where great minds can gather to change the world, The Booth was born. Since its humble beginning, The Booth has transformed the Korean craft beer scene driven by its core philosophy, “Follow your fun”. We have hosted one of the largest beer festivals in Asia (several times), have done exciting collaborations with trending artists, and launched the first 100% refrigerated beer distribution system in Korea. Oh, and we also made it to Forbes 30-Under-30 Asia! Fast-forward to today, The Booth US team is getting ready to make history in the biggest craft beer market in the world. Our mix of cutting-edge high-quality beer, “fun” philosophy, and Korean twist, has already been attracting the mouths and hearts of many craft beer lovers and even non-enthusiasts!
What is The Booth looking for?
The Booth Brewing Co. is looking for a versatile, team player, focused on cellar work but able to work in most aspects of this growing brewery. This position would be best described as an assistant brewer or cellarperson but will be unique in that it will involve cellaring, packaging, shipping, and receiving. Reporting to the Head Brewer, the candidate will form an integral part of a three-person production team, collaborating to supply beer throughout California and to The Booth’s seven pubs and retail distribution chain in Korea. A thorough understanding of all aspects of cellar related beer work, including cleaning equipment, filtering, packaging, and QA/QC is required. Brewing experience is certainly a plus, but not required.
The brewer will:

- Perform daily duties including, but not limited to, CIP, malt milling, yeast harvesting and pitching, fermentation monitoring, filtration, general cleaning, beer tasting, beer packaging, and material handling.

- Operate forklifts and other equipment as trained and directed.
- Be comfortable (as possible) working with chemicals of varying composition and maintain strict adherence to safety standards at all times.
- Have a strong attention to detail, quality, and positive attitude.
- Be able to work a variable shift schedule. The Booth typically operates between 7 AM and 7 PM, with an eight-hour brewer shift scheduled in that time. Schedules can be flexible as needed, to a point.

- Safely lift and move up to 55 pounds regularly and repeatedly and manipulate up to 165 pounds.
- Walk, kneel, bend, stand, and climb stairs and ladders.
- Work in a brewery where temperatures can be extreme, humidity can vary significantly, and in a loud operating environment.
With regards to qualification, experience, and education, The Booth understands that not everyone will have the below, but the ideal candidate will:
- Have an Associate or Bachelor degree, preferentially in a beer- or science-related field, or have a professional degree or certificate in brewing or beer related science.
