It will not be long until J. Wakefield Brewing Company is officially open, but in the meantime the brewery is seeking to build its staff for when the time comes.

The brewery is looking to hire three beer-mind people: assistant brewer, a cellar man, and a person to fill a packaging position. Because the brewery is nearly complete and brewing is set to begin shortly after, these positions will need to be filled soon.

As far as an exact timeline for brewery construction, owner Jonathan Wakefield has not commented recently. But according to its Facebook page, the brewery is in the "final leg" of construction.

When completed, it will be the third brewery in the Wynwood Arts District, sharing a street with two other breweries on NW 24th Street, Wynwood Brewing Company and Concrete Beach Brewery.

It will also be among six production breweries in the county. This is a huge improvement on the beer industry in Miami compared to last year when there was only two breweries.

Wakefield became known among the beer industry, both local and nationwide, for his tarty, low-alcohol wheat beers made with locally-grown tropical fruit. Dubbed the "Florida Weisse", it is Wakefield's take on the Berliner weisse beer style. The dragonfruit-passionfruit Berliner weiss, or DFPF, is perhaps the most well-known of his beers.

He also made waves last year when he broke a Crowdbrewed (like a Kickstarter for breweries) fund-raising record, raising more than $112,000 in a matter of days.

Wakefield also has collaborated with some of the country's top brewers, including Cigar City and Stone Brewing companies. Earlier this year Wakefield collaborated with Greg Koch from Stone to brew a batch of Hot Lil Miami Tart, a Berliner brewed with guava, mango, passion fruit, and chile peppers.

J. Wakefield Brewing is also partnering with Michael Mina 74 to put on a five-course beer dinner on October 15. Tickets are $135. Reservations are required.

Applicants who are serious about applying to the open positions at J. Wakefield Brewing should email their resumes to Jonathan Wakefield at jwakefieldbrewery@gmail.com.
