Love Beer Too?

Our friends at Canada Craft Club are looking for a new team member. If you love beer (just as much as you love wine) this might be a great opportunity for you!


We are looking for a passionate and dedicated individual in charge of coordinating beer. What does that mean? It isn’t a simple job to define. The Beer Product Coordinator, in a nutshell, is responsible for finding the best brews on the planet. For real though, we take this responsibility very seriously.


You will work alongside our Product Coordinator, becoming a key puzzle piece to the beer team. Duties will include:

  • Create, develop and grow relationships with beer importers and brewers
  • Produce beer related content – reviews, blogs, videos, social media.
  • Manage forecasting, orders and inventory
  • Provide beer education online, in-house and at the retail shop
  • Customer service support via social media, phone, email & chat
  • Retail shifts, aka valuable face-time with our members
  • Representing the company at events, fundraisers and with our partners


The ideal candidate will possess all of these qualities:

  • Approachable personality with the ability to provide rockstar customer service

As with any good team member, you should be willing to jump in and help when needed. We also require for you to be organized, able to prioritize efficiently, and address problems with critical thinking.


This job is not for the faint of heart, it will require someone with the ability to manage many requests and deadlines, ensuring everything keeps moving. Although you are dedicated to the beer industry, you must possess a ‘Jack/Jill of all trades’ skill set and a ‘yes’ attitude. From printing labels and packing orders to beer tasting, and everything in between.


You are qualified because you:

  • Are Proserve certified
  • Have some sort of cicerone/formal beer training
  • Are able to haul cases of beer (20 kgs)

An Exclusive Tell-All: My Love Affair With Wine

I used to know that I enjoyed wine, but I honestly couldn’t have told you exactly why. I loved the taste, of course, but I was sure that I hated all Merlot and that white wine in general was just ‘okay’. I enjoyed the smell, but to me, all reds just smelled like wine, or if I was getting really creative, like grapes. All white wine tasted like juice, and I tended to drink it as such, without paying much attention to it at all. I was completely content with my limited wine knowledge, because I honestly had no idea how limited it was… until I joined the WineCollective team.

For the last several months I have been surrounded by my very impressive team of wine professionals and they honestly blow me away with their knowledge and love for wine. I remember the first time we did a wine tasting in the office, it was during my very first week working at WineCollective as the Customer Service Coordinator. I probably sat with an inch of California Merlot in my glass for an hour, trying to identify the things that the rest of the team were saying they smelled and tasted. Plum, cedar, vanilla, strawberry, rhubarb… what?? Since when are all of these things, and more, present in this one glass of wine? How have I missed this for all these years? And so my wine education began.

Since that day, I have focussed on learning about wine, I even enrolled in wine school and have completed my Level 1 WSET course through Fine Vintage Ltd.. I now find wine amazing! Not only because it’s delicious, but also because of the culture that exists around it, the generations of families whose way of life rely on the wine industry and the intricacies in each and every wine making process.


Here are some of my favourite wine related discoveries:

  • Wine is about 7000 years old!
  • There are over 10,000 grape varietals, about 1,400 of them are used to make wine.
  • Maybe the most obvious, but I swear it never occurred to me, the type of wine, ex. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio is the grape varietal used to make that wine.
  • Shiraz and Syrah are the same grape. Shiraz is grown in warmer climates like Australia, while Syrah is grown in cooler climates like Northern France.
  • Climate, region, growing season, altitude and winemaking practices all have drastic influences on each bottle of wine produced, so a complete dislike for one particular varietal, worldwide, would take a lot of research to confirm.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon was created by combining Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc and recent DNA testing has proven that Cabernet Franc is also a parent of Merlot
  • White wine only tastes like juice if you drink it as such. I have been most surprised by my gained knowledge of white wines! I’ve found beautiful, tantalizing aromas and flavours  in white wines such as peaches, passion fruit, pineapple, honey, caramel, vanilla and so many more, what’s not to love?
  • Riesling, though delicious, can smell and sometimes taste mildly like petrol or rubber bands, usually more apparent in aged wines. This can take some getting used to, however there are many other beautiful flavours present in Riesling to focus on.
  • “Sweet wine” is actually a style of wine, for example Ports or Sauternes. Describing the majority of wines as sweet in inaccurate. Sweetness may be implied by the flavours present in the wine, but there is actually very little sugar in the majority of quality white and red wines, which are mainly categorized as dry wines.

I could go on and on. My family and friends lovingly refer to me as a wine snob now, but I would say that the difference in my attitude towards wine is that I’m actually paying attention. I’m looking for more in wine than I ever have. It takes practice to be able to identify the complexities in wine and I have a lot to learn, but I am definitely enjoying the process. I encourage anyone who has never explored wine this way to try it out. Spend some time looking at, smelling and really tasting the wine in your glass. Don’t get discouraged if at first you don’t smell or taste anything but grapes, keep trying and you will surely enjoy what you find!
