Do the big boys have your favorite brewer’s number?

Andrew Mason, assistant brewer at Flossmoor Station in suburban Chicago, writes he got the strangest phone call yesterday from somebody who identified themselves as from MillerCoors.

The woman on the phone asked, “Are you or anyone you know interested in job opportunities with MillerCoors?” I very nearly laughed and I certainly didn’t take her seriously, but now I regret that I didn’t hear her out. I don’t want a job with MillerCoors in any aspect of their business but I wonder if they were offering brewing gigs or sales or what.

Strange beer days indeed. Next thing you know we’ll be hearing rumors about Anheuser-Busch being bought out.

    The recruiters working for Miller are busy. They made the phone call rounds here at our brewery about a week ago.

    Don’t forget that Miller-Coors has just announced their new HQ will be in the Chicago area. Andrew may have just dodged his one chance to become a marketing monkey for the new conglomo!

    Uh, Andy… you don’t have that number, do you?

    No, SteveH-they didn’t want him to do marketing. he was going to be asked to sit on the board of directors here in Chicago. What?? You can’t go from making 650 bbls/year to a couple of million?? It’s possible. This is America!
    (FWIW-Flossmoor Station is 100% American owned brewery and the largest American owned brewery in Flossmoor, IL)

    “You can’t go from making 650 bbls/year to a couple of million??”

    Sure you can, especially when you’d be making what they make — it’s the same recipe you guys use… quintuple the water. 😉
