Posted June 24, 2024

4 Pines have long enjoyed ocean views, with the brewery starting out in Manly. Their newest brewpub is located in Surfers Paradise and they're looking for a head brewer to lead operations there. 

Job Description: Head Brewer Surfers - 4 Pines Brewing Company

WE LOVE BEER! Do you?!

4 Pines was born over a decade ago after a casual conversation between a father and a son, post-surf, who simply wanted an exceptional beer, and options were limited. Fast forward to today and our operations have grown exponentially since our little Manly Brewpub but we're still on a lifelong journey with family, friends and community to forever challenge what the world imagines business to be... and of course, having some fun and a lot of laughs along the way. We're on a path of continuous improvement in our award-winning beers, our well-established core range as well as our ever-evolving pipeline of new product development and unique styles.

We know that our beers are only as great as our people, so to keep us elevating our game we’re on the look-out for a like-minded and experienced Head Brewer to join our ranks and head up our Brewpub in the picturesque Surfers Paradise, QLD. This is a senior role within the 4 Pines brewing team and a great opportunity for a highly motivated brewer to take that next step in their career with the support of a talented and experienced team.

As part of this role, you will be an integral part of brewing our core range beers as well as creating some of our Limited Release range - those unique beers that the locals have come to know and love us for. You'll be taking the reins of a 5hL brewpub in all aspects of operations with a focus on producing quality beers.

An immediate start may be available for the right candidate.

  • Guarantee the respect of HACCP standards
  • Be an active 4 Pines Ambassador; someone who represents the 4 Pines brand positively, proactively collaborating with the TSG team, balancing the requirements of brewery, brand & venue

What skills will you likely need?

  • Managing our SmartBrew system at 4 Pines Coolangatta to ensure a consistent supply of delicious, limited release beers.
  • Recognised technical brewing qualifications
  • 3-5 years’ experience in brewing with knowledge of recipe development and a flair for creativity

  • Experience in fostering positive relationships with key external stakeholders – suppliers, customers, and hospitality staff
  • Good knowledge of Brewery safety systems
  • And most importantly, you can project 4 Pines core values of craftsmanship, community, integrity and authenticity

What about the perks?

  • BEER! (of course) – Free case each month from the 4 Pines or Brookvale Union range
  • Wide access to training and development pathways – investment in skills certification, formal brewing training courses and lots of on-the-job skills training
  • Even more industry access visa our parent company Asahi / CUB
  • Great perks – 50% off food and beverage (for you and your mates) at 4 Pines venues, Boardriders apparel, 4 Pines merch and other discounts at partnership venues
