Just as good restaurants need talented chefs and cooks, brewpubs and craft breweries require skilled brewers to help establish and/or maintain quality standards. Brewers may be employed at large, multinational beverage corporations, or they may work at smaller operations. Generally, no matter what their employer's size, the brewer oversees the creation of beer from start to finish and ensure it meets their employer's standards for quality and consistency.
