  • Be fit - Brewing isn’t easy so you need to be physically capable. We may need you to do deliveries too so be ready to go home tired but knowing you've done a great job. 
  • Be a clean freak - Love the smell of PAA in the morning? Have we got a job for you! We need our brew team to be relentless in their pursuit of bugs. 
  • Be Up: On any given day, shit will go wrong. What we need is you to work through a solution. This can only be done using a positive mindset. 
  • Be assertive: You are in a team and there is a structure, but don't wait to be asked, if something needs doing, do it. If you think something is wrong, say so. A shrinking violet won’t grow in a brew house.
