3 Sheeps Brewing Company

We are looking for an energetic and driven person with a commitment to handling aggressive growth to work with our founder to help push this brewery forward and reach its full potential.
Located just north of Milwaukee, in the craft beer loving community of Sheboygan County, 3 Sheeps Brewing has quickly expanding year after year. We have the capacity to triple our volume to 30,000bbls before further construction is required. Combined with our robust barrel aging program and vibrant taproom, we are eager and hungry to continue growing and creating great craft beer.
We are looking for someone to join us and work closely with our team to lead the production side of the brewery. We have plenty of room to grow within our current facility and are looking for the right individual to help take us from being a microbrewery to a regional brewery. We are driven at 3 Sheeps Brewing to continue to make great beer and grow quickly. This person must share the same drive.
