An Edinburgh brewery is offering what could be a dream job for beer lovers in the capital after it posted an online ad for a new assistant brewer role.

The full time position is on offer at Top Out, a small microbrewery in Loanhead, and will involve brewing, bottling and labelling, as well as occasionally helping out at bar events.

Posting on their website, the Brewery team wrote: “We are a small micro-brewery brewing a range of award-winning and unconventional craft beers since 2013. We have undergone a steady growth over the past few years and are now requiring an additional pair of hands to meet demands due to increasing sales.”

The position is for 40 hours a week and the hours of work are generally from 9am to 5pm, however, according to Top Out, the working patterns can be flexible.

The successful candidate will be provided with full training working closely with the head brewer on all aspects of production.

Top Out are looking for physically fit, hard working applicants who have a “keen interest to work in the brewing industry” with a background in brewing and the food and drinks industry beneficial “but not essential”.

The post adds that a clean and full UK driver’s licence “would also be desirable”.

If you think you fit the bill and want to apply, the brewery are asking people to send a brief cover letter stating how they would fit this role and an up to date CV to info@topoutbrewery.com or via traditional mail to Top Out Brewery, Unit3, 6b Dryden Road, Loanhead, EH20 9LZ.

The closing date for applications is the end of this month.
