2021 Brewery Trainee Program (BTP) Research Pilot Brewery Co Op
- United States
BTP RPB Co Op
At the Research Pilot Brewery you will be part of a team managing an area of our brewing process. You will be manually moving beer, grinding in malt, and reporting data to upper management...think of us as a very efficient Microbrewery in the middle of the largest brewery in the country.
You are going to be a part of our company's Innovations group which is responsible for the development of new products and processes. You will be challenged constantly here to provide NEW high quality beers and flavored malt beverages (FMB's) in a SAFE and efficient manner to support the future growth of our company.
There are many things that you will be doing here throughout your co-op but the one thing we can promise is that you will not be bored. Among day-to-day production, you will be asked to manage an improvement project, present a 'Beer Science' topic to your peers, own an area of the brewery to ensure it has all the tools we need, and present about everything you learned to our director and other Innovation leaders.
This is not like many engineering co-ops you may encounter out there. It is very hands on and manual. You will be moving hoses, opening valves, cleaning tanks, transferring products, centrifuging beer, ect. To complete these tasks you will be working with the equipment you are currently learning about in school. There are flow meters, plate and frame coolers, glycol jacketed tanks, yeast separators, steam heaters, and many lab instruments that you will be responsible for calibrating and operating.
In the end we believe you will get out of this Co-Op what you put into it. So come ready to work and ready to learn and we know you will have a great experience that will stand out on your resumes.
