Dark Horse Brewing Has the Most Awesome Employment Listing Ever

In Beer News by Karl

Pre-Order "Beer Lover's Chicago" Today!

Why? Because it's got a ton of beer info in it. And we wrote it.

Marshall, Michigan’s Dark Horse Brewing Company is one of our absolute favorite Michigan breweries, a feeling that’s bolstered when we saw some of what was listed their employment page.

Basically, the job descriptions and requirements are like, the best ever. Starting with this: “If you’ve dropped acid 20 times, lost two or three years to booze and can still manage to keep time, then you might fit in.”

Selected requirements for their Chicago-based sales gig, which requires “lots of beer drinking”:

  • Must be a fun people person, no squares
  • Strong but responsible beer drinking skills
  • Can read a map and navigate without gps
  • Work while being “hung over”

Additionally: “If you meet the criteria listed above and would like to give it a shot please send a cover letter stating why you want to work with a motley bunch of hillbillies, hippies, and bikers in the world of beer. Along with the cover letter please include a resume and a list of your top 6 favorite things in life.”

I have a hunch that says if someone were to respond to this, simply quoting this monologue from Conan the Barbarian, you might have a leg up on other candidates.

They’re also looking for another Head Brewer, as well as a Head Cellar “BEING” to lead 2-6 people in their cellar operation – we’re intrigued by that one.

Anyways, if you are looking for a beer gig, you could certainly do worse.
