Over the past 30+ years we have learned that a beer is only as good as the brewer’s commitment and the quality of the ingredients.
At The Boston Beer Company, people are our most important “ingredient.” Just as we travel the world with boundless curiosity and determination in search of the best ingredients for our beers, the same can be said about our search for the next Boston Beer employees. We are eager to find smart, motivated, hardworking people who love beer and want to join our team.
Our culture is rooted in Jim Koch’s earliest days as our Founder and Brewer. He wanted to build a company where he would be happy working. We are committed to maintaining a culture that celebrates beer with a passion and knowledge that’s contagious. As Jim says, “If you can’t have fun in the beer business, something’s wrong.”
When Jim Koch started The Boston Beer Company in 1984, he described himself as CEO – Chief Everything Officer. He did everything from brewing and selling the beer, to delivering it to our first bars and restaurants across Boston. Signs announcing the arrival of Samuel Adams Boston Lager were hand made on poster board. Budgets were tight, but Jim’s priority was clear: always put quality first and do what’s best for the beer.
Today, we are a team of more than 1,400 passionate employees. We have grown to be one of America’s leading craft brewers, and yet we have just over 1% of the U.S. beer market. As we grow, we work hard to keep the strong culture of a small entrepreneurial business with an incredible work ethic.
No matter where the members of our Boston Beer family come from, we’re all here for the same reason: For the Love of Beer. New employees joining our Sales and Boston Office teams start in an orientation program that includes company history, selling skills, beer education, and an extensive beer tasting with Jim. Training and beer education courses continue after orientation – we’re proud to have the largest number of Certified Cicerones® (aka beer geeks) in the industry! Everyone in the company is also encouraged to homebrew for our annual employee Longshot Homebrew competition. Additionally, our Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream program enables us to share our passion and expertise and give back to small business owners in the industry.
We work hard brewing and selling better beer for our drinkers – but at the end of any given day, beer should be fun! What could be better than celebrating our hard work with our colleagues and round of Sam?CLICK HERE TO EXPLORE OUR OPEN JOBS
