Speakeasy Ales & Lagers, based in San Francisco since 1997, is adding a Regional Sales Manager for the Pacific Northwest. With a major brewery expansion recently completed, we are looking for a savvy, ambitious individual that are well educated in craft beer and excited to take on the challenge of managing our expansion in the region. Over the next year, we will be launching the brand across Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska, and we need a passionate, organized and experienced candidate who can work independently, implement sales strategy across multiple distributors and forge lasting relationships with customers.

Our Regional Sales Managers are tasked with developing new business in all channels of trade including on-premise, national accounts and independent retailers. Also, core to the position is embracing the role of brewery ambassador by maintaining a presence at key sampling events, communicating our message in the field and finding opportunities to educate at every turn.

Our ideal candidate should live in the greater Seattle or Portland area and have at least two years of previous beverage industry experience either at the supplier or distributor level. You should possess an insane passion for craft beer and a desire to make your mark in the business. You should possess a flexible schedule – able to work nights and weekends as needed – and be willing to travel up to two weeks a month. Adherence to budgets, administrative reporting and sales analysis is required, as is fluency in the Apple OS universe and MS Office Suite.

We offer a competitive salary and bonus structure, opportunity for advancement and relocation, medical/dental insurance, an IRA retirement plan, vehicle allowance, vacation time, and expense budget.

If you’re interested in joining us in the craft beer revolution, send a resume and cover letter to brandonspeakesy@gmail.com telling us what you love about craft beer and why you’re the best person for the job. Resumes without cover letters will not be accepted. Please no phone calls.
