Born in the Summer ’13, Brussels Beer Project is now entering a most exciting stage of growth moving from a start-up to a scale-up phase. Our aim is to be amongst the leading voices of the craft movement in Belgium & Beyond.

We are a team of over a dozen stupid dreamers shooting at the stars, and a much larger community behind us. We want to boost our talent base for the exciting opportunities lying ahead and are looking at filling 4 different roles.

Export shaman / Full time - Brussels based

Background Story

We are passionate about traveling & make people travel through our myriad of beers. Brussels Beer Project aims to capture the vibrant cosmopolitan genes of the city we cherish. With this spirit, we’ve been looking outward from day 1. We also take at heart to spread around a fresher idea of Belgian beer, cultivating what we love about its well-known savoir-faire while adding exotic influence to the picture.

While a majority of our beers are still enjoyed locally around Brussels, we have witnessed a strong appeal for our beers coming from abroad as well. Almost one third of our beers cross the borders now and reach 19 countries. The craft momentum knows no frontier and we would love to see our beers keep traveling & spreading our spirit.

You’ll be the one main person responsible for making this happen. As an experienced & well-travelled professional, you should expect both top responsibilities and exciting travel destinations!

What does an Export Shaman do? And does he/she need special powers? 

The Export Shaman will build & develop BBP presence in both on & off trade for our key export markets. He/she will be responsible for managing all commercial operations abroad, improve existing relationship & explore new territories. There will be a direct on-the-field connection with our major importers & distributers and will manage the export orders. She/he should expect traveling and representation to major events & festivals abroad.

What we are looking for?

We look first and foremost for the right person to fit the team with an entrepreneurial mindset

  • Consummate passion for craft beer
  • Creative & collaborative mindset is an absolute must
  • Previous export experience will be highly valued
  • Entrepreneurial flair & drive
  • Team spirit with great communication skills
  • Obsession for constant learning & ability to share this learning across the team
  • Positive, flexible on her/his hours & always keen to take up new challenges

Keep in touch

Captain of Important Stuff

Background story

CO-CREATION is our DNA. Brussels Beer Project is built around 2.500 crowdfunders and many more beer enthusiasts who want to travel with us through discovering new beers. Our community is our past, our present and our future. There is certainly much more fun and richness in collaboration than in top-down isolated thinking.

We have already been through loads of exciting moments with- among others the crowdfunding Beer For Life, the elections of the “All-Star” beers, mybeerproject.be, a craft beer festival in Brussels with great international breweries, opening in Tokyo our first home for our community outside Belgium, and so on. We also have been busy working on original sustainability issues such as the first food-waste based beer, Babylone, brewed with unsold bread and are pursuing efforts to get the most of our spent grains with specific studies.

Yet there is so much more we can do. We’re looking to add a great talent in our team and we hope it can be you.

What the hell is a Captain of Important Stuff really doing?!

People are more important to job titles & should certainly not be limited by them. This is true for all and especially for this very entrepreneurial job. There is no box to fit the one person we are looking for. Certainly a key player of our team, leading project-based missions. She/he will be responsible to manage projects from A to Z, improve our key annual events while also create her/his own initiatives related to community building and sustainability. We look for someone truly passionate about our philosophy who can make a disrupting difference with bold impactful projects.

What we are looking for?

Although we look for an experienced and successful professional, we look first and foremost for the right person to fit the team with an entrepreneurial mindset:

  • Consummate passion for craft beer
  • Creative & collaborative mindset is an absolute must
  • Previous experience in a leading role as project manager is required
  • Entrepreneurial flair & drive
  • Team spirit with great communication skills
  • Positive, flexible on her/his hours & always keen to take up new challenges
  • English is required. French and/or Dutch on top is highly valued.

Keep in touch

  • All applications should include a CV, a short explanation explaining why you’d like to join us & your favourite song/artist

Logistics Gladiator

Context

Our brewery is located in the heart of Brussels. This is our playground. There we brew and bottle more than 20 recipes every year.  The production team is cosmopolitan as it is made up of 3 brewers (a Belgian, a Portuguese and a British) as well as a logistics gladiator (an Italian).  The latter, Giacomo, follows his love in Bretagne J and so we are looking for a successor !

 

What is a Logistics Gladiator?

The role of the logistics gladiator is of prime importance in the production, but also, broadly speaking, in the team. The tasks are really diversified. Here is a non-exhaustive list of some of them :

  • Helping for the bottling and the kegging of the beers
  • Managing the packing of the beers
  • Managing the logistic flows in the brewery (storage, pallets preparation, etc.)
  • Managing the stock update in the brewery
  • Managing the sampling of produced beers
  • Helping for the logistics for some events in or out of the brewery
  • Helping for different small but important tasks (delivery, cleaning, fixing, etc.)
  • And if that’s possible, you even make it to replace Giacomo by taking over the role of the funniest of the team ;)

 

What are we looking for?

We are firstly looking for someone that fits to our values and that is fully integrated in our team. And obviously, someone that has the appropriate mindset to fulfill this important role for the production :

  • Cheerful team player
  • Passionate or willing to know more about craft beer
  • Manual, careful, multi-task et efficient !
  • Not afraid to go the extra mile and get your hand dirty
  • Flexible because the beer production might be capricious
  • Experience in logistics is highly valuable
  • Experience or skills of mechanic, electrician, handyman, welder, … is also welcome
  • At least French and/or English

 

Keep in touch

  • Send us your resume, an explanation of what drives you to join us as well as your favourite song/artist.
  • To be sent to antoine@beerproject.be with, as object, « Logistics Gladiator » by the 8th of September.
