Gilman Brewing is looking for a new member to join us at the shop. We are seeking an experienced applicant for a full time cellar/packaging lead / assistant brewer position. We have a mellow family environment and a great position within the growing East Bay brewing community.

We believe that every position in the brewery shares responsibility for producing an exceptional product- the contribution of each individual on the team, from production to processing to serving, merits the same respect and level of involvement in the process and deserves the same level of recognition for those efforts. This is very much a family, team, and passion first and a business second.

The cellar lead position is responsible for all aspects of the cold-side processes related to fermentation, conditioning, treatment, clarification, carbonation, and packaging of product.
