INTERNSHIP (1 YEAR MINIMUM CONTRACT) Leading to Full Time Employment for the right person
JOB DESCRIPTION – QC Brewer
Trestle Brewing Company is a small craft brewery located on the waterfront in beautiful Parry Sound on Georgian Bay’s coastline of 30,000 Islands - the largest freshwater archipelago in the world. We opened in June 2018, with a 20 HL brewhouse, 40 HL cellar tanks, and a semi-automatic canning line. We brew beer that we love to drink with pride - and we can’t make enough of it! We have two permanent year-round LCBO listings and are adding seasonal listings starting September 2020. Our brewery has one of the best locations in Ontario with an incredible riverside Patio, Biergarten, Taproom and Retail Store onsite. Trestle is a destination for visitors to the area as well as a hub for the local community and events. We are a 2 hour drive from Toronto. Our gastropub style menu focuses on using fresh, local ingredients & includes our beer as much as possible. In 2019, we served over 95000 guests onsite.
We are family owned and operated with a belief that the whole team here is part of our family. Our Brewmaster Matt Lyons graduated in the third class of the Niagara College, then brewed in BC for four years before joining us in the spring of 2017. He’s easy going, incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and committed to brewing beer of the highest calibre. Our company is committed to ongoing learning, growing and improving everything that we do. We are looking for good people with similar beliefs.
We are passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. We are an equal opportunity employer that knows that diversity in our organization benefits our employees, our customers, our products and our community.
The Parry Sound Area:
An outdoors paradise, Parry Sound is located on the shores of Georgian Bay, just two hours north of the GTA, an hour west of Huntsville, and 2 hours south of Sudbury. Our area is one of the main “Cottage Country” regions in Ontario. It is a small town that is growing quickly, with about 20,000 year round residents in the surrounding area that swells each summer with seasonal residents and visitors to well over 100, 000. It’s a great community to settle into with a lower cost of living, housing and very little traffic. It’s not the city, but you can go for a swim on your lunch break in the summer and snowmobile to work in the winter. If you hate swimming and snowmobiling - there are a ton of other activities you can engage in… biking, beekeeping, kayaking, kiteboarding, fishing, sailing, hiking etc.
