    Does anyone know if there is a site similar to indeed or the like that is just for craft beer /brewery job openings?

    As many breweries that are popping up, I still would not think there are enough jobs to support a national search site for beer jobs alone.
    However the ProBrewer forums has a help wanted section I believe.

    Try, though it’s been my observation that knowing one person in the industry is worth a thousand blind applications. Getting to know your local Brewers will generate leads more efficiently than cruising job boards.

    I am doing that locally, but want to see if there's anything I'm missing. Thanks!!

    See you're from SWPA? If you feeling like relocating, apply to Tröegs. Wasn't a brewer, but worked there PT. Awesome company. Would still be working there if I didn't move.

    Do you know how to brew?

    Basically every brewery is looking for bodies to carry stuff around and clean (grunt work) if you can show up on time and not do too much "sampling." Don't expect much money, but you could think of it like an apprenticeship if you truly want to learn and you get along with the actual brew team.

    If you are looking into sales/wholesale jobs, winejobs has a zipcode search and you might stumble upon a wholesaler who has wine + spirits + beer. Otherwise, if you just go into a Total Wine / Grocery store on a monday or thursday morning, eventually you'll see someone wearing a Bud or Coors polo and punching in orders on an iPad, and ask them if they are hiring (they always are)- tons of turnover. They may ask you to do merchandising (moving the cases around and stocking the shelves) for a while, until you know the brands and systems of the company. Also if you know the names of the wholesalers in your area, reach out via phone or email, they are often looking for people who show up and don't get sauced.
