Head Brewer - Shred Monk Brewing

Bozeman, Montana

Shred Monk Brewing is an award-winning 7bbl brewery, restaurant, and coffee roaster in downtown Bozeman, Montana. We are looking for a creative, hard-working individual to lead our brewing operations to supply beer for our farm-to-table restaurant and our growing off-premise beer sales efforts.


At Shred Monk, we make beer, coffee, and food for people trying to better themselves by following their passion. Being based in Bozeman, Montana many people pursue their passion for mountain and outdoor sports; however, as a company we aim to be inclusive of all pursuits. For us, it’s not about the WHAT; it’s about the HOW. In that aim, we want to offer products that will energize our consumers and help them celebrate their accomplishments.


A Shred Monk is a person who pursues their passions with discipline and intention. Without the Shred, the Monk stays too introspective and doesn’t act. Without the Monk, the Shredder acts without thought or purpose. This is our Yin and Yang which we attempt to keep in constant tension and balance.


BE BETTER – Ambition : Iteration : Discipline

We will push to be better today than we were yesterday – as people, as a brewery/restaurant/coffee roaster, as an employer, and as a member of the community. Our focus on constant iteration will lead to positive growth for the company and everyone in it.

EMBODY A MOUNTAIN PUNK ETHOS –  Question the Conventional : Thoughtful Disagreement : Truth Seeking

The world doesn’t need another run-of-the-mill brewery. We strive to be willing to break the mold, make things we love and empower the lifestyle of Shred Monks everywhere. We will seek to find better ways of doing things; better ingredients, better processes, and rewarding what works and tastes best – not simply relying on what is familiar.

MAKE POSITIVE CONNECTIONS – Humility : Community : Fun

Life is too short not to keep perspective, connect with others and have fun. While being driven to excel we will strive to maintain humility and inclusiveness; not elitism and high mindedness. Be humble and learn.  Make everyday count. Appreciate others along the way.


We are looking for a Head Brewer who embodies the values of Shred Monk and has a strong desire to get the best out of life while achieving growth in their career. We don’t believe in conventional job descriptions or overly index on prior experience – we want to empower people to excel at doing what they love. As a small company, we don’t have rigid roles – we all work together to get the job done – but we do have exacting standards and won’t settle even for above average. Average is forgettable in this industry. Above average will succeed locally, but won’t stand up elsewhere. We want to be world-class and stand out in quality and consistency while creating memorable products for those looking to get up and get after it every day. If that journey is one you want to embark on with other fellow Shred Monks, then we look forward to working alongside you.


As a brewery, we produce beers from across the beer style spectrum but focus primarily on two product lines: lower ABV beers and “celebratory” beers with higher ABV. The aim of our lower ABV beers is to offer our customers great tasting beer under 5% ABV – beers that won’t knock you off course in the pursuit of your passions and goals. This includes our 2022 Great American Beer Festival Bronze winning German Pilsner. For our higher ABV beers – those large format DIPAs, barrel-aged or funky beers you crack to celebrate big accomplishments – we expect the Head Brewer to use the same attention to detail required to brew an award-winning pils. We are looking for a brewer who is very keen on quality and process, regardless of beer style. We currently have a small lineup of core brands that we will expect the Head Brewer to continue to produce and refine on our 7bbl, 3-vessel brewing system. However, the Head Brewer will also be given creative freedom to develop and produce new core brands and rotators.


We will pay at the top end of market value for most positions in the company. If we expect world class quality, fellow Shred Monks should expect to be compensated at industry leading levels.


Rest and recovery is integral to high-level performance. With this in mind, the Head Brewer position won’t have set limits on vacation days or hours. We want you to take care of yourself while still producing world class products. That dynamic is neither concrete nor static in nature and therefore should move with the goals we have and the amount of rest and recharging you need to meet those goals.


Health insurance in a HDHP w/HSA will be covered by the company.  Beer and coffee will also be readily available .
