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.Know anyone that fits the rest of those?
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.
