This job is no longer accepting applications.


Lost Boy Cider is growing and looking for a new person to join our production team! This is an entry level position and people from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Experience is great but not required. We would love to welcome someone new to the fermentation industry and are happy to train the right candidate! There is the opportunity for upward mobility and the possibility to evolve into a full-time position as our cider production continues to increase. 

Company Description:

Lost Boy Cider is a cidery and tasting room in northern Virginia which produces a wide variety of delicious ciders and offers a fun and inviting environment to guests. We are a growing business and an active member of our community. Our focus is on creating a beverage we can be proud of, a delightful space to share with our customers, a team of enthusiastic employees, and a company that is a pleasure to work for. We believe in work/life balance and in enjoying your time while at work. 

We are an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills as well as creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

Position Description:

The cellar assistant position is a foundational production role at Lost Boy Cider; everything else relies on it. Primary duties will include operating the canning line, cleaning and filling kegs, as well as assisting with various cider making tasks. These tasks may include cellar/warehouse organization, tank cleaning, juice reception, ingredient additions, cider transfers, blending, labeling, recordkeeping, packaging orders, idea generation, and taste trials, among others.

Much of the work will be repetitive and physical in nature. The position involves many consecutive hours on your feet, lifting up to 50 pounds, driving a forklift, climbing ladders, and getting in small enclosed spaces. However, our team believes in sharing the most fun aspects of cider making as well. Attention to detail and a fondness for cleanliness are beneficial qualities for this position; everything else can be learned in the journey. Our cellar assistants are valued members of our team, they are integral to our success, and are included in the entire cider making process as much as possible (although 90% of cider making really is cleaning). 

Not sure if you should apply? Yes! You should still apply if… 

  • You don't have a lot of formal education. The right skills and the desire to learn are more important. 
  • You don't have prior experience in the craft beverage industry. It would be our pleasure to introduce you to this vibrant space. 
  • If you have been formerly incarcerated. Your past circumstances don't dictate your future potential. 
  • You require flexible working hours. We may be able to accommodate your needs. 
  • You think you are "sort of" qualified but not 100% qualified. Don't sell yourself short! 

You must be logged in to apply to this job.
