Hiring: Packaging Technician
Fair State Brewing Cooperative is seeking a full-time (40 hours/week) Packaging Technician to join our production team in St. Paul, MN.
A little about us
Fair State is one of very few cooperatively-owned breweries in the US. We were also the first microbrewery in the United States to become unionized. We began operations at our brewery/taproom in Northeast Minneapolis in August of 2014 and expanded into a 40,000 sq. ft. production brewery in St. Paul, MN in 2017. In addition to a growing stable of core brand beers, the recent passage of the law allowing for the sale of hemp-derived THC edible products has opened a new market for our brewery. The increasing demand of contract production for THC seltzers and other beverages has created the need to expand our packaging team.
Currently we operate a 7.5bbl brewhouse at our taproom location in Minneapolis. At our St. Paul Production Facility, we operate a 4-vessel 30bbl brewhouse. This is also the home of the Packaging Team and is where we package our beer in cans and bottles.
A little about you
We’re looking for a dedicated, hardworking, and knowledgeable person to help us stay on track. The ideal candidate would have some experience in the beer industry, packaging experience preferably, or in warehousing/manufacturing generally, and be willing to learn.

The position is also on a rotating shift, 6 am–2 pm, 9 am–5 pm & 2–10 pm. The shifts can vary based on workload. Packaging Technicians report to the Packaging Manager.
