MANY FACES INITIATIVE BREWERY INTERNSHIP 

Thank you for your interest in the Many Faces Initiative Brewery Internship Program. The Many Faces Initiative was founded with the purpose of fostering diversity and inclusivity within the craft brewing industry. In 2020, the Many Faces Initiative raised funds for the North Carolina Brewers Guild’s Diversity Scholarship Program through Town Brewing Co.’s release of Many Faces West Coast IPA. In 2021, the Many Faces Initiative will continue its mission by launching a paid ten-week brewery internship program designed to provide mentorship and offer an immersive training experience to people of color interested in pursuing careers within the craft brewing industry.

 

This year, four breweries and one cidery located across North Carolina will host interns. Interns at each brewery will rotate through different areas of operations at their host brewery (brewing, sales, marketing, and taproom and event management). All interns will also work on a capstone project for a deeper dive into a craft beer topic of their choosing during the internship and will benefit from networking events and a guest speaker series. 

 

Brewery Internship Guidelines and Requirements 

1) Candidates must be 21 years of age or older to apply.

 

2) The summer internship runs from May 24th, 2021 to July 30th, 2021.

There will be a mix of in-person and virtual events throughout the internship, including guest speakers and networking events, and all precautions will be taken to ensure the health and safety of interns. 

7) All interns will be required to complete a Capstone Project on a craft brewing topic of their choosing (pending topic approval from host brewery and the Many Faces Committee). The Capstone Project will be presented at the end of the Many Faces Initiative Brewery Internship.
