Felons Brewing Co is modern-day brewery now open on the banks of the Brisbane river. With the response we have had from the Brisbane community we are now looking for experienced brewers to join the Felonry in early 2019.

Headed up by ex-Little Creatures Brewer Tom Champion, we believe in brewing with passion and freedom. We will embrace the traditions of the past while being inspired by the present to brew balanced and natural beers of no fuss.

  • Support maintenance of Brewery equipment
  • Work closely with the Lead Brewer to execute our innovation plan on our pilot kit
  • Represent the brewery and engage directly with our customers and communities in the venue and in trade, at festivals and the wider brewing community.

What we’re looking for:

  • A passion for brewing consistently high quality, balanced and flavoursome beers
  • Candidates with experience brewing in a small to medium sized brewing operation, including semi-automated packaging lines,
  • Commercial brewing, engineering or scientific qualifications in Australia or overseas
  • A safety-first attitude and the ability to instil and maintain safe workplace practices
  • Experience with canning and bottling lines is highly desirable
  • Ability to perform rotating shifts in a physically demanding work environment
