This is a dream hopportunity for someone...
Bath Ales is on the lookout for two apprentices to join the team at the state of the art Hare Brewery in Warmley. The successful applicants will get hands-on in the brewery as well as undertake academic-based training at the International Centre for Brewing Science (ICBS) at Nottingham University (becoming a brewer is a sure-fire way to make friends with other students, we reckon!). It’s planned that within 18-24 months, the apprentices will have completed a qualification similar to the first year of a BA course at uni and be well on their way to a career in the brewing industry.
Since opening what we described as a ‘cathedral of hops’, Bath Ales has developed two new brews there; Lansdown West Coast IPA and its first-ever first lager, Sulis. It’s hoped that the new recruits will bring bags of enthusiasm to the table and help Bath Ales maintain its brewing operation, which currently creates 14.5 million pints every year under the guidance of head brewer Georgina Young.
Georgina says, “We’re delighted to be opening Hare Brewery’s door to the brewers of the future. It’s so important that we offer high-quality training opportunities and look to nurture talent within our industry.
“We’re looking forward to meeting some of the shortlisted applicants – it’s a Gem of an opportunity for aspiring brewers looking for a foot in the door.”
