We live in southern France in the Eastern Pyrenees – close to the Spanish border and about 70km from the Mediterranean beaches…
We are a British family of four, have lived in the region for some years, and have recently taken over a local hotel and installed our brewery here.
We are looking for help with our brewing activities only (so no work required in hotel) which will include brewing days, bottling, packaging and labelling.

Explore the beautiful local area - lots of walking and cultural and historic sites to explore
This host offers accommodation and payment.
10 -20 hours a week work of help with our brewing activities– this includes helping with brewing days, bottling and packaging beer, moving beer, cleaning up after brewing and bottling. Please note that heavy lifting (barrels, crates of bottles, sacks of grain) is REQUIRED.
Please note that there may be some days when a longer working day (6-7 hours) would be required, but other days would be free.
Although we set up our brewery here over 7 years ago, we have only recently started brewing again at our new premises so there are some processes which may change so a flexible approach would be helpful!
English spoken at home, with some French
We have recently taken over a hotel and your accommodation would be in a hotel room (either double or twin beds, depending on availability) with a private bathroom.
Meals will be provided in the hotel restaurant - breakfast, "menu du jour" at lunchtime, and soup or salad in the evenings .
The following information might be helpful:
• There is a bus stop within 100m of the hotel but, in order to benefit most from the beautiful location, your own transport is recommended.
• We prefer 2 people (either 2 singles or a couple).
We prefer helpers to be aged 23+
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
10-20 per week
