From the very beginning, our founder and brewer, Jim Koch, wanted to start a company that he would want to work for. His goal – to build a culture that celebrates craft beer with a passion and depth of knowledge that can’t help but be contagious to others. We start by hiring hard working, motivated, passionate, enthusiastic, creative, and competitive people who always look to raise the bar and never settle. Not to be lost in the shuffle is the ability to have fun – after all, we are a beer company, and if you can’t have fun in this business, there’s something wrong!


Just like our beer is the result of the perfect mix to the finest ingredients and products, our world-class Company is the result of the perfect combination of high quality talent.  The Boston Beer Company is constantly looking to add “new ingredients” to increase the quality of our organization.
