Join our team

Straddie Brewing Co was born out of a love for North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) and great tasting beer, crafted for the enjoyment of Straddie-lovers, old and new. We’re devoted to making fresh beer, full of flavour, inspired by place and island time.

Situated in the beautiful township of Dunwich (Gumpi), our island home is currently under construction and is due for completion mid-2022 with plans to open in the spring. Our brewery and canning line will occupy the ground floor, the first floor will house a tap room and kitchen, with the top floor dedicated to a roof-deck bar and event space for soaking in the sunsets and views across Moreton Bay to West Stradbroke Island aka Australia.

We are seeking expressions of interest to join our small team and to play a critical role in what we’re building at Straddie Brewing – a community meeting place, an independent and locally owned and operated manufacturer, and a destination venue that encourages visitors to be mindful and to cherish and actively protect Straddie’s vast natural beauty, friendly island vibe and rich history.

Loving Straddie is essential for all roles.

We believe variety is the spice of life and actively encourage all our staff to train across a variety of tasks and areas of our business, allowing greater opportunity for career progression within Straddie Brewing and in the future. If you have the necessary skills and experience to take on any of the following critical roles for both our business and brand, then we’d love to hear from you:

Venue/Operations Manager – proven experience in a similar role for a similar sized venue (approx 200 pax). Responsible for leading, supporting and developing the skills of all venue staff. Do you relish the challenge and responsibility of developing Straddie Brewing Co’s hospitality offering? We’d love to hear from you…

Head Chef/Kitchen Manager/Pizzaiolo Extraordinaire – proven experience in a similar role for a similar sized venue (approx 200 pax). Responsible for leading the team in the kitchen and ultimately everything that goes over the pass, creating food and menus that suit our location and fit our raison d’etre – sharing our love of Straddie and island crafted beer. Neapolitan style pizza will be a core part of our menu, so experience with this is desirable but not essential. Do you have the drive and passion for developing Straddie Brewing Co’s culinary offering? Let’s chat…

Events & Customer Experience Manager – proven experience in a similar role for a similar sized venue (approx 200 pax). Responsible for our bookings and functions systems, brewery and island tours, communications and execution. Do you thrive on bringing joy to all and improving our customers’ experience of our product, people and place? We need to hear from you…

Mainland Brewery Representative/Sales Manager – proven experience in a sales representative/sales manager role, preferably with a brewery but at the very least with a beverage/FMCG background. Responsible for bringing a taste of Straddie to our mainland backyard of South East Queensland, operating from our mainland warehouse in Cleveland. Do you love beer and Straddie and sharing that love with people for a living? Time to talk about your dream job…

We’re also on the lookout for people to help out with production and packaging in the brewery, serving drinks and food in the taproom and roof deck bar, working in the kitchen, representing us at events, hosting brewery tours, delivering our beers around the island… the list goes on.

Loving Straddie is essential for all roles. Loving beer is preferable but not essential – we’re keen to give opportunities to all ages and experience levels, and training will be provided. If you’re keen to be a part of our new and exciting Island Crafted business with lots of potential for career progression, a focus on excellence, upskilling/training and the perfect work/life blend, please get in touch. Tell us what you think you could bring to our team, your experience with similar roles/businesses in the past, or other experiences that you think prepare you well for a new role with Straddie Brewing Co.
