Friend of Beeriety Justin Lloyd recently began working at Chelsea Brewring Company in Manhattan as a cellar man. Below is the latest in his series of articles about what it’s like to work in the brewing industry.
The last month at Chelsea Brewing Company has been like a crash course in everything from brewing technique to boiler maintenance. Unlike most jobs, being an employee in the brewery forces one to become proficient in many things that at first may seem completely unrelated to beer. However, after a few weeks it now seems obvious to me how essential things like properly functioning heat and consistent pH levels in water are to the job.
