COLD SPRING, MN – Third Street Brewhouse (Third Street), the craft brewery behind popular beers like Minnesota Gold and Hop Lift, announced the promotion of Matt Milbert to Area Sales Manager with the Minnesota brewery.
Milbert has a rich history with Third Street spanning nearly a decade. Milbert grew up in Cold Spring, MN and spent his summers working part time in the brewery warehouse. “I’ve done a little bit of everything,” Milbert said. “It was a very small operation when I first started, which allowed me to touch many areas before we had our own distribution centers.”
Milbert attended St. John’s University in Collegeville, MN and joined the brewery full-time upon graduating. Milbert’s education isn’t the only tie at Third Street Brewery with St. John’s University. Third Street’s winter seasonal, Sugar Shack has exclusive rights to the maple syrup made by the St. Johns’ Abbey monks. Check out this sweet brew, when it becomes available on November 1, 2016!
In his current role as Alcohol Compliance Specialist, Milbert manages brewery operations, determining what beverage they produce, when they produce it and how much they produce. Milbert has been closely aligned with distributors to manage inventory, orders and shipments. Milbert is also in charge of federal excise tax and handles the federal and state licenses.
In his new role, Milbert will be taking on a territory of his own, not too far from his alma mater in the St. Cloud, Sartell and Sauk Rapids area. “I am most looking forward to being out in the market,” Milbert said. “My industry experience and history with Third Street is something I look forward to sharing with our customers. We have an exciting future in the works and I am confident in the direction we are headed.”
Milbert will start his transition to Area Sales Manager the week of October 24, 2016.
