Part Time

You have always been fascinated with combining the craft beer and food service industries as your dream job. You have more food ideas than time. You’re looking for a brewery/kitchen owned and operated by people that make and love craft beer paired with quality food, and who will appreciate your contribution. You understand that craft beer consumer tastes are diverse and, in that order, food paired with it should be just as diverse. You’re ready to join the food production team.

Category 12 is growing! Situated on the Saanich Peninsula, we opened our doors just over six years ago and have recently expanded our lounge and added a kitchen! We left our careers behind to open Category 12 and unleash our creativity on the world while proudly blending it with our scientific roots. We have a modern, bright and inviting work environment with a great on-site lounge now expanded and with a kitchen. We brew beers that are hard to make and love truly unique flavour experiences that are both Belgian and West Coast inspired. We have a deep fascination with the science and art behind the craft of brewing and are obsessed with all the geeky details (microbes and all!). We have an expanding oak barrel-aging program and propagate any yeast strain we desire. Hundreds of brews later, we feel like we are still just beginning to flex our creative muscles with new ideas constantly in development. We’re a tight-knit family of friendly, passionate people that thrive on taking the beer we brew and food we make seriously but not ourselves. We enjoy supporting each other, sharing our beer, food (and story) with the public and getting the job done every day.

You are:

    - Customer focused Knowledgeable with most culinary techniques
    - Able to take direction, criticism and praise from customers and management
    - Able to work independently
    - Keenly able to identify and prioritize details that matter
    - Passionate and enthusiastic about craft beer

You have:

    - Food Safe certification is required
    - 6 months to 1 year of cooking experience
    - Experience in highly orchestrated work environments is a plus

This part time position pays $18/hr plus a split of the tip pool with approximately 10 - 20 hours per week (presently Fri - Sun). We would be willing to work the appropriate candidate on scheduling shifts around school hours if desired.
