Seb Borghi

Brewing Technician

Seb’s job title is Brewer & Assistant Packaging Manager at Wild Card Brewery

What I do

I oversee the brewing process for making craft beer. Once a month I get to design a new recipe. It’s a privilege to do that but I have worked hard to get to that level and my company has a lot of trust in me. 

The other part of my role involves working on the packaging of our beer, in the packaging line or transferring the big volume of beer from the tanks into the small packs of cans. It’s a manual and technical job and worked my way up to being able to run the machinery and troubleshoot any issues that arise.

A typical day in my
working life

A little more about
my everyday role

The most exciting thing I’ve achieved so far in my job

One specific beer I had brewed from my own recipe was rated the highest amongst beers that were ever produced on a famous app called Untapped. The beer I developed is the highest rated from the brewery’s list. I am very proud of it - it’s called Citadel Double IPA.

The best bits about working in a team

There are people more experienced than me here so it’s great watching and learning from experts in their field. I found it difficult in the beginning as I wasn’t used to this way of working, but when I learned how to fit in and work together, it’s been really rewarding achieving results together.

The next steps in my career journey

Professionally, I would like to move up the ladder, take on more responsibility, design more beers and collaborate with other breweries. I am working to achieve my diploma and I might start studying for something else, like judging beers, tasting and maybe even starting to learn about wine.

My hobbies

I do home brewing, which allows me to experiment more. In my professional career I follow my company’s instructions, whereas at home I can brew and do my own research.
