Distillers and Brewers for Grand Canyon Brewing and Distillery


Recommended Posts

Hey Potential GCBD family,

We are looking to hire two brewers and one distiller as we expand into our new facilities. We strive to create a fun and engaging working environment where our people are empowered. We believe on in-house development of individuals and helping them to reach the level of success that they wish. We prefer to promote from within and look for individuals that are both happy to learn and teach.

Williams, Arizona is the "Gateway to the Grand Canyon" and we are 45 minutes south of the park entrance. To our east is Flagstaff, a very cool historic route 66 town with a great night life. To our south is Sedona, a beautiful area and a hiking / climbing paradise. The local area is ripe with outdoor experiences, including ski sports, hiking, climbing, canyoneering, boating, camping and fishing.... if it is outdoors, we have it (except surfing an scuba diving, you'll need to make the four hour drive to Mexico for those).

The brewery side it a production brewery but we have a 7bbl system for brewers to experiment and create on. This system is specifically designed for brewers to have fun and follow their passion!

The distillery side is in the growth phase. We currently do whiskey, gin, rum, vodka, liqueurs, bitters and canned cocktails. If you want experience in making a lot of different products then this is the place for you!

We are happy to cross-train individuals between brewing and distilling if you want to round out your alcohol production education!
