of Brasserie de Silly

Michaël Gendarme, production manager

My main responsibility is to ensure that our various beers are always in stock. So we are able to meet the needs of our customers. It’s complex because we produce a lot of beers. Larger orders, especially for export, must be integrated into the various schedules (brewing, filtration and bottling). I also have to be careful that everything runs smoothly for production. I make sure, with the production team, that we have all the necessary equipment such as, for example, bottles, racks, boxes, etc … but also the various products needed for cleaning, filtration, etc…

In short, all the supplies and raw materials necessary for production. I’m often helping everyone in carrying out daily tasks, in organizing and distributing them and also in compensating for absences for holidays or other reasons. There is also the cleaning of our premises and especially of our various machines: internal and external cleaning, sterilizations, preventive and curative maintenance carried out by the team in collaboration with Bertrand and also Daniel our mechanic, who steps in especially in case of more serious breakdowns.

The physico-chemical analyzes of the produced beers as well as their visual and taste controls are also part of my responsibilities. I also have other responsibilities such as the management of our organic certification by Certisys but also our recognition by the AFSCA (federal agency for food safety). And finally, there is the human aspect as I occupy a central place in connection with the different departments such as management, reception / sales, stock / delivery, production, brewing / quality and suppliers. This gives me many contacts in which I always try to provide everyone with the most adequate responses. My work is, of course, a job that requires a lot of investment but which is rich and varied, as there are daily challenges to be met.
