We’re Hiring Casual Taproom Beertenders!

Dan Hiring, Taproom

We have two breweries and Taprooms on the Gold Coast, one in Burleigh Heads (HQ) and one in Biggera Waters (BHII), both of which are world class venues where our team offer exceptional service and hospitality to our customers.

Our Taprooms are incredibly important to us. They are where most of our top customers get to experience Black Hops for the first time and we are constantly challenged to make sure they have the best possible experience every visit.

Our Beertenders are all friendly, approachable and have good knowledge of beer and the Black Hops story and this is what we pass on to our customers when they are visiting us. We always aim to make people feel at home when they walk through the doors at Black Hops and we are looking for Beertenders who will exceed these expectations.

About Black Hops:

Black Hops Brewing started as 3 mates making beer and sharing everything they learn along the way. In 2014, Dan, Eddie and Govs made their first beer, the Eggnog Stout, after discussing the concept at the pub. That led them to opening up a brewery and taproom in Burleigh Heads in 2016 and in March 2019 they opened a bigger production brewery and taproom in Biggera Waters.

Black Hops was awarded Australia’s Champion Small Brewer at the 2018 AIBA Awards and in March 2019 and Champion Brewery at the RQFWS Queensland Beer Awards.

These days Black Hops is one of Australia’s highest rated and fastest growing breweries. We distribute beer to over 450 venues in QLD, NSW, VIC and SA and we are just getting started. We are a team of over 20 dedicated full time staff members, and many more casuals. All of us have a great work ethic and are passionate about craft beer and the Black Hops brand.
