LONDON (16 April 2018) Goose Island Beer Co. has today announced it’s searching for a Brewmaster to head up the brand’s new European Brewpub – set to open in London in late Summer 2018 – and the job comes with some amazing perks.

Days will be spent brewing, innovating and tasting  beer, and according to the job advertisement on LinkedIn, the new recruit will be treated to generous ‘Goose Perks’; including a monthly beer allowance; free travel, courtesy of a Goose Island single speed bicycle; and an all-inclusive month-long trip to the homeland of Goose Island, Chicago. Whilst there, not only will they be immersing themselves in the Goose Island culture, they will also be working with and learning from the  team of expert brewers ahead of the London Brewpub’s opening.

The Brewpub, set to open in late Summer 2018, will offer beer from the brewery’s classic and award-winning range, including English-inspired style ales, barrel aged stouts, dry hopped IPAs, sours, lagers, as well as innovative small-batch brews crafted on site by the new Brewmaster. More details are set to be announced in the coming months.

Goose Island Beer Co., which celebrates its thirtieth anniversary this May, is Chicago’s original craft beer brewery. The London Brewpub is the first in Europe and follows openings in the USA, China, Mexico, Korea and Brazil.

Ken Stout, President of Goose Island Beer Co. International, said: “We’re searching for an experienced brewer with a big personality to become the face of our new Brewpub in London later this year. We’re pumped to get started and meet the candidates.

“We’ve been on an incredible journey here in the UK and are looking forward to this next chapter.
