Times are good in the Brooklyn beer world, and maybe times are not so good at your office job, where another day waiting the Chop’t salad line might make you want to chop’t your arms off. But New York is amid a brewery boom and that means a brewery jobs boom too. So if you’ve ever dreamed of quitting your desk job and working with beer in a more official way (rather than just supporting the industry through your purchases), you’ve got a good shot at some jobs right now at great Brooklyn spots including Threes Brewing, Brooklyn Brewery and Sixpoint. Details below:
The barely a year old Threes Brewing in Gowanus — which operates a Brokelyn-approved bar, brewery, coffee shop and event space, and — is hiring some big-deal, fun-sounding jobs right now, which would involve organizing events and certainly would also involve the occasional taste of beer.
The company is looking to hire a beverage operations manager, who works on the “execution for our beer, wine and cocktail program.” The gig has some fun responsibilities, including organizing public tastings, creating special events, develop nightly drink specials and designing a “frequent flyer” subscription service for customers.
Threes is also hiring an assistant general manager focused on customer experience, whose responsibilities would include executing public events, improving food/drink service and ensuring buyback policies are being followed (we don’t know what these policies are but support any place that recognizes the importance of buybacks). Just remember who gave you the tip about the job.
Brooklyn Brewery in Williamsburg has a slate of job openings right now, including a marketing coordinator, a shift brewer and a tasting room floor manager.
Red Hook’s Sixpoint Brewery has two openings too: a content designer to help make its marketing materials and other creative stuff, and a VP of marketing and sales to help sell those things the designer makes. Both have a “Mad Scientists Only Need Apply” disclaimer.
If home breweries are more your thing, our friends at the Brooklyn Brew Shop are hiring for a few spots too: a social marketing assistant, a sales director and a paid (oooooo) internship.
If beer isn’t your inebriant of choice, perhaps you should put this job in your pipe and apply for it.
