Blue Owl is Hiring a Packaging Person!

Blue Owl Brewing is a unique sour-mash brewery in Austin, Texas producing 3,000 bbl annually on a 30 bbl system.  We are looking to fill a vacancy immediately for a packaging person with some experience OR we will train the right person who wants to get into the industry.  

Our ideal candidate would have either have a bit of packaging experience under their belt, or have no brewery experience but be super passionate about beer and brewing and wants to make a career out of it!  We are a small group of passionate, talented, creative folks so we need a good fit culturally as well as adaptability as we all do a little bit of everything.

We offer a competitive hourly wage (with tip share), 3 weeks PTO, free beer (of course), 50% covered health insurance, and because of our small workforce, a lot of opportunity for collaboration in beer prototyping, brand design, and continued education.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————

Job responsibilities include:

·       Raw materials: Assessment, organization, management, and inventory

·       Packaging: We package our sour beer using a Wild Goose 5-head can filler. The candidate would need to eventually run or be able to run a similar canning line.  Including prep, cleaning, and maintenance.  Also, kegging and keg cleaning will be part of the week (but that’s generally more straightforward).

·       Finished Product Management: All the canned/kegged product needs to go somewhere!  So the candidate would work with our distributor as well as our taproom to establish how much is needed and where.

·       Cleaning and Organizing: This role is the go-to person for making sure the warehouse area is organized, cleaned, and ready for the next process event.  This includes a lot of forklift work.  Our brewery isn’t all that huge so keeping things organized is key for everyone’s sake! 

·       Weekly Breakdown: A typical work-week will include 2 days working on the canning line and kegging. There’s another 2 days of prep work for the canning runs and organizing for the upcoming week.  Finally there’s generally a wrap up day for cleaning and preparing for the following week.

 

Ideal experience and abilities:

·       0-2 years of relevant packaging experience

·      Self-management and accountability are crucial in this environment where it’s a small team, leanly operating.

 

We are an equal opportunity employer. To apply please send a cover letter and resume to jeff@blueowlbrewing.com with “Packaging Position” in the subject.
