Beer Jobs are some of the best jobs you can ever have. When someone ask you what you do for a living, are you excited to tell them. I know I was!
Working for Coors Brewing Company was one of the best jobs I could have ever dreamed of having. Selling a great beer and going to parties that most people could never get into was unbelievable. There were so many times that I could not believe I was getting paid to do what I was doing. I would go to concerts and get backstage passes and could you believe that I even got paid to be there.
Becoming a Beer Sales Representative
Becoming a Coors Light Rep or any major brewery rep is not the easiest job to obtain. It is actually very difficult. There are less than 300 Beer Sales Representatives that work for Coors Brewing Company. Most beer jobs are the same. Breweries do not hire a lot of people to sell their beers because they use beer distributors to sell their beer to retailers. Retailers then sell the beer to consumers.
Brewery Beer Reps market and develop the brand with beer distributors and major retailers. As a brewery beer rep, your main job is getting a distributor to focus on your beer.
You will ride with distributor beer reps and show them how to properly sale and market your beer. You will also go to local bars and retail accounts and build relationships with the entire staff.
