Hours may vary, but the expectation is that the intern be onsite for at least 4 hours weekly. Additional research and development for new operation procedures and laboratory methods will not require the intern to be onsite.

  • The entire process of brewing on a commercial scale from grains to packaged product
  • Inventory and ordering of raw materials
  • Planning a brewing and kegging schedule based on projections and current inventory
  • Managing staff schedule for brewery operations
  • Establishing relations and promoting sales with potential customers.

The intern will also be exposed to the craft brewing industry at large, and many possible roles for a trained PhD scientist. Deliverables include:

  • Involvement in the implementation of a new packaging line
  • Development of a quality assurance program for packaged product
  • Expansion of a quality assurance laboratory with new equipment and procedures
  • Establishing methods of recording and analyzing quality assurance data
