We are looking for an experienced Queensland Sales Rep. Someone who loves people and craft beer to get Holgate brands into the hands of Queensland beer lovers.
Holgate is expanding. Our beer is getting into the hands of beer lovers everywhere and we need someone who loves people and loves beer, to help us continue that trend. We are looking for someone who'd like to join in the culture of Holgate and connect people to the beer that we make and love: full-flavoured, refreshing ales and lagers "straight-from-the-gate."
This is your chance to come and join the team as we power-on into the future with exciting new projects such as our Sour and Barrel Aged program, our growing family of IPAs, Gate Series special releases and brewery expansion.
The Holgate Family: Since 1999 we have been making beer entirely ourselves, bold and brimming with character - carefully constructed with authentic, natural ingredients. From its early origins in Paul and Natasha's backyard, until the brewery found a home in Woodend, Victoria, our ales have been Australian owned and 100% independent.
The Right Person: Craft beer is about people. It's about people sharing in the experiences and excitement of beer with flavour. It's a conversation about the new things that you've tried, the hops, the malt, the breweries, the travel… It's about mates and fun and uploading the best Instagram pic (well, maybe not the last one)?
The right person for us, is all about people.
These are the things we are looking for:
- Beer/ Liquor Sales Experience essential.
- A relationship person who finds it easy to connect with people.
- Able to educate people about the beer, history and brand.
- Someone who is self-motivated and has a go-getter attitude.
- Strong networking abilities and knowledge of the industry.
- A good grasp of the different social media platforms and how to use them.
- Able to organise and co-ordinate beer events and tastings.
- Able to work independently whilst also meeting KPI's together with the sales team.
What's on offer?
This is an outstanding opportunity to be a part of a successful business that is on a strong growth curve. Our expansion project is underway to cement our commitment to brewing beer ourselves. You will be working with a dynamic and respected brand in the industry and rewarded as we grow a strong pioneer beer brand together.
Remuneration will be commensurate with experience, including bonuses for meeting targets as set by the National Sales Manager. Your package will also include a car allowance.
First brewed in 2013 to mark our 1000th brew, Millennium Falcon is made with pale malt and an interstellar hopping rate to produce an “Emperial” IPA that is simply out of this world. For this 2017 release, the hop bill has again been tweaked and features a star-studded cast of favourites both old and new. Get ready for a tropical hop hit from beyond the stars!
May the hops be with you!
Millennium Falcon Emperial IPA

Made with pale malts and lots of hops (Azacca, Citra, El Dorado & Mosaic)
OG: 19° Plato, IBU: 100, EBC: 5
This year, the brewers decided to shave a little off the ABV to make this massive beer more drinkable, though they stopped short of calling it a session-able Imperial IPA! The aroma is chock-full of super-fruity US hop aroma – think juicy pineapple, tart citrus, stone fruit, boiled lollies and bubblegum. On the palate the fruity mélange is underpinned by a bold, evergreen hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and luxurious yet at the same time dangerously drinkable.
FIRST BREWED 2017
Created entirely in the brewery without aging, this funky and sour ale is a mixed culture beer, fermented with Brett and soured with Pediococcus and Lactobacillus.
After enjoying the success of our first forays into sour beer (especially the 2016 release of Wild Red Ale), the team were hankering for some more “play time”. However, the cold winter has slowed the development of future vintages of WRA which are ticking-over in our barrel room. To satisfy the itch, we’ve delved into the world of primary Brettanomyces fermentation, designing a sour ale fermented in stainless and using two different Brettanomyces strains. To aid the complexity of this funky and tart creation, prior to the Brett fermentation we introduced a kettle souring regime involving both Lactobacillus and Pediococcus bacteria.
This is a purely yeast driven beer with no late kettle or dry hopping. The simple malt bill has created a hazy, pale orang beer that is redolent of lazy, late-summer afternoons. The aroma displays classic Brett funk with a zesty acidity balancedby sweet summer fruits –think peaches, apricots and mango with a hint of forest fruits – that border on confectionary in their intensity. The palate is unmistakeably Brett with touches of rustic funk underneath a bracing lactic acidity. The sweet fruits are in play too, the whole being reminiscent of childhood sour candies, lemon sherbet and green gooseberries. The finish is lipsmackingly dry.
