LEAD BREWER

 

The largest and oldest Croatian craft brewery is looking for a Lead Brewer who will be the right hand of our long-time Brewmaster and production manager – Božidar Kostanjčar!

Medvedgrad Brewery is a family-owned brewery founded in 1994, laying the foundations of craft brewing in Zagreb and Croatia. Since the beginning we have been brewing our natural beers following the highest standards and traditional methods – on modern equipment.

Our biggest love and specialty are lagers and IPAs. We consider lager to be the greatest beer classic and hops the most magical beer ingredient. The raw materials we use are exclusively of natural and top quality. We do not use preservatives, surrogates, antioxidants, enzymes nor fining agents. It is especially important to us that our new brewer understands our brewing philosophy and can easily fit into it.

We are looking for an experienced brewer who lives beer, who wants to develop, who wants to participate in the ambitious plans of Medvedgrad and who believes that his knowledge can immediately contribute to mutual success. We offer a stimulating work environment and maximum support in brewing first-class and creative beers!
