We are seeking expressions of interest from first or second year apprentices, who are keen to join our small team in launching this new venture in the Yallingup Hills, Western Australia, opening in late February 2019.
ABOUT WILD HOP >>>
Wild Hop Brewing Company is a start-up Brew Pub, family owned and operated in the idyllic Yallingup Hills, located in the northern part of the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia - approximately 2.5 hours drive South-West of Perth.
Wild Hop Brewing Company’s vision is to be known for brewing beer that excites us, beers that challenge us, beer that is full of flavour and character. We plan to rotate through the brews regularly, rather than sticking to a core range of beers.
Our intention is to create an interesting and dynamic customer experience that reflects our values of freshness and creativity.
We anticipate serving a small, dynamic, share style menu featuring seasonal produce that has been licked by the flames of our Zesti wood fired rotisserie oven.
Wild Hop is located on 50 acres of bushland and cleared paddock land, with a 40m2 hop yard, small established orchard, a flock of chooks, bee hives, and plans for a significant kitchen garden area. We hope to build a team of talented, passionate individuals that truly enjoy what we do, and the location where we do it. We subscribe to the work-hard//play hard philosophy, and believe that work should be fun and enjoyable. We plan to empower our staff with development opportunities, whether that is regular tasting and training sessions around the brewing process; sessions in the garden//orchard//hop yard//kitchen; or looking at more specific skills development opportunities as they arise.
ABOUT THE ROLE >>>
You will be required to work closely with all other teams on a daily basis to achieve a dynamic and exciting menu that complements what is happening in the brew house, and takes advantage of what’s available in the kitchen garden. Communication, teamwork and respect is critical to this role. You must have an interest in artisanal brewing, and be willing to learn about the wide and revolving range of beers that our brew house will be producing. You should see opportunity in developing a menu that complements those beers, as well as using them as an ingredient in its self. You must also be eager and excited to get involved with wood fired cookery, as the key feature in our kitchen is a Zesti wood fired rotisserie oven. Previous experience with similar equipment is desirable, but not essential.
