Default Looking to become an Assistant Brewer

I'm currently in IT, but want to become an assistant brewer. You guys have any tips, warnings, anecdotes for me?

For those of you in the industry, how did you get your foot in the door?

Thanks!

first step would be to find your local brewery and see if you can get a job scrubbing mash tuns.....That is where you will start.

I too am looking at it maybe ten years down the road when the kids move out and the wife and I can move somewhere warm with a lower cost of living. subscribed.

Everyone at the brewery I work at starts cleaning kegs, loading bottles on the line and making boxes lol. The mashtun cleaning is a cellerman's job which takes 6-12 months to step up from the packaging department.

If you have a lot of beer experience and/or are working at a newer brewery you could probably skip a step.
