ANN ARBOR - Drink beer, host events, get paid.

Sounds like the ideal job for a college student looking to have fun and earn some extra cash on the side.

As the craft beer industry becomes an increasingly popular line of work, and as universities begin to offer coursework in brewing, Colorado's New Belgium Brewing -- the fourth largest craft brewer in the U.S. -- is hoping to tap into university campuses.

Best known for its Belgian-inspired Fat Tire Ale, New Belgium Brewing is on the search for 14 students across American universities to participate in its "College Brand Ambassadors" during the 2018-2019 school year.

The campus brand ambassador will be responsible for executing promotions, arranging tasting events and creating and securing relationships and partnerships.

Brand ambassadors must be students 21 years or older and enrolled in the following schools:

  • Arizona State University
  • Atlanta University Center Consortium (Morehouse College/Spelman College/Clark University)
  • Boise State University
  • Boston University
  • DePaul University
  • Long Beach State
  • San Francisco State University
  • Southern Methodist University
  • St. Joseph’s University
  • University of Colorado
  • University of Kansas
  • University of Miami
  • University of Michigan 
  • University of North Carolina  

The paid, part-time position includes a visit to the company's brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, where the ambassadors will learn more about the business. Another plus? There is a possibility students will be granted a fulltime position upon graduation.
