Technical brewers are responsible for managing the process of brewing and packaging beer. They are responsible for the quality and consistency of the product.
A technical brewer may specialise in just one area of production, which is particularly likely in larger breweries, while they may be responsible for all aspects of the process in small breweries.
Technical brewing remains a hands-on occupation, despite increasing reliance on technology. Technical brewers can oversee all stages of production or they can specialise in one area.
