Bucketty's are a brewery in Brookvale who operate a lively brewpub and have secured some major beer award success since they launched. 

The team is also a whole lot of fun and if you'd like to lead all things brewing for Bucketty's, they're hiring. 

Job Description: Head Brewer

About you

You’re ready to unleash your creativity. You want autonomy and flexibility with your work day. You want to work with an engaged team to create beers and beer drinking experiences that punters talk about for years after they’ve drained their glass. 

You’ve been a commercial brewer for a while and are ready to break out of the big beer machine and fall back in love with making beer again. 

You’re ready to be Bucketty’s new Head Brewer. 

The Role 

Head Brewer of Bucketty's Brewing Co in Bookvale. 

We seek a brewer to guide us to the promised land where beery dreams are made and we reckon this could even be the best brewing job in Australia!

Here’s why:

We’re well capitalised and regularly over invest in most aspects of the business, all for the sake of making the best possible beer, and creating a positive culture. 

We value innovation and creativity, which you can unleash on either the 3 vessel 10hl Brewtique brewhouse, or 200L pilot system. 

We don’t work to the mercy of big box retailers, selling our beer exclusively to independent bottle shops and bars as well as inside our busy 200pax tap room. 

As the Head Brewer, you’ll also be managing and mentoring a senior brewer, and trainee brewer.

Salary: $90k to $120k inc super, depending on experience. 

Other perks: 

  • A 3 month paid sabbatical after 5 years of service to do that thing you've always wanted to try, but never had the time. This is in addition to regular long service leave 
  • Trips! In the past 3 years we've been to the US for CBC twice and interstate 5 times. It's a big world out there and there's lots to learn from other brewers & breweries.  
  • Free food and beer (obviously). 
  • Break out to our farm 90mins north of the brewery in Brookvale for a night or two and get involved in our annual wet hop harvest. 

About Us

Bucketty’s Brewing Co is a proudly independent, fiercely competitive, growth orientated brewery that makes awesome beer, crafts incredible memories and is always looking one step ahead. 

We love paying it forward, supporting a myriad of charities, local sporting teams and community groups. 

We’re in the process of securing a DA for a second venue & brewery in the Hunter Valley which will catapult us on our next stage of growth after coming out of the blocks fast in 2021. 

If you’re ready to make some magic with founders and a team that are all in with you, this job could be the one you’ve always been waiting for. 

To apply, please contact nick@buckettys.com.au with a copy of your CV and a note on why you think this would be a good fit.
