Brewmaster - Spindrift Brewing Co.

Dartmouth, NS


Inspired by the land, sea, and people, Spindrift Brewing Co. wholeheartedly embodies Atlantic Canada.  Our hands are tough, and our hearts are soft.  Our friendships are strong, and our kitchen parties are rowdy.  We share our experiences, hardships, and laughter.  Connected by the unforgiving sea that surrounds us, Atlantic Canada has a distinct character and charm.  At Spindrift Brewing Co., we tap into that coastal spirit.  Our passion for Atlantic Canada comes through in the beers we brew, the stories we tell, and the people we surround ourselves with.  We are Atlantic Canada’s brewery.

Reporting to the General Manager, this role will be responsible for overseeing and executing all of our brewing operations – brewing on a 20 BBL, Steam, 3 vessel (MM,LT,BK) DME Brewhouse, using Pall Lenticular Filtration and currently packaging primarily using our Cask ACS 4.2 Canning Line. 


Some of the expectations of this role include:

  • Managing wort production process and development of Spindrift Brewing Co. recipes including core, seasonal and one-off brands;
  • Conducting quality checks, process audits, and monitoring production reports to ensure quality and consistency, performance and record keeping;
  • Developing SOPs for quality and safety, and managing operations to ensure strict adherence to established SOP standards;
  • Identifying opportunities for new product development including creation of new recipes and associated production standards;
  • Procuring ingredients and maintaining appropriate ingredient inventory levels to support efficient production schedules for year-round beers, seasonal and specialty products;
  • Coordinating brewery operation schedules, equipment vendors/manufacturers, outside contractors, and brewery personnel to ensure compliance with production scope, schedule, and budgets;
  • Collaborating regularly with the Brewery leadership team to support effective brewing, packaging, distribution and retail operations;
  • Developing new production methods and procedures to optimize product quality, brewing operations and operating costs;
  • Managing equipment maintenance contracts and evaluation of contractor execution on deliverables; and
  • Developing and actively managing the Brewing and Cellaring team.

We are looking for an operational leader who is dedicated and as fervent about brewing as they are to upholding the quality efforts in our plant.  They will be passionate about craft beer, our industry and its’ culture and people.  Our Brewmaster will be organized and dedicated to delivering consistent, quality product day in and day out. They will be professionally driven, with an equal ability to be collaborative and work on their own.  Strong interpersonal and communication skills are a must.  They will be detail oriented, know how to creatively solve problems, establish priorities, and show flexibility in changing situations. 


Previous experience running a 5000HL+ brewery is essential in the leader we are seeking. They must be prepared to drive our team forward as we continue to experience significant growth and plan for the future.  If you are excited by the opportunity to contribute to a successful and growing brewery and interested in being part of a dynamic team, we want to hear from you!


At Spindrift Brewing Co., we embrace diversity across all our operations and foster a respectful and inclusive work environment. Individuals that represent a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills are encouraged to apply.

Thank You
