Head Brewer

Mare Island Brewing Co. in Vallejo, CA is searching for a Head Brewer to add to our senior management ranks.  

Our Coal Shed Brewery (your office) is located on the waterfront on the former Mare Island Naval Shipyard.  Opened in 2017, we transformed this historic Navy coal shed into a state-of-the-art 8,000sqft brewery and taproom.

We brew magic on our 15bbl Prospero brewhouse and 1bbl Blichmann Pilot systems.  In August 2020, we installed our brand-new CODI 6-head counter-pressure filling canning line with depalletizer and in-line labeler.  We have an awesome, small, and dedicated production team that we have trained from scratch and are ready for your leadership.  Our third retail taproom location will be opening in the coming weeks and we are self-distributed throughout the Bay with over 120 current and active accounts.  The only piece we are missing at this point, is you.
