  • Description


    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.

  • Help


    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!
