When you think of a beer job, you probably think of a guy in a brewery, probably bearded, possibly in overalls, pouring industrial quantities of yeast into an enormous vat.

As exciting as it can be to work in a brewery, the beer industry is much broader than that, with a multitude of jobs ranging from brand managers to delivery drivers to the guy hovering over the bearded dude's shoulder, making sure he doesn't spill anything.
