National Public Radio announced this morning that the Four Points Hotel chain’s “Chief Beer Officer” position was their pick for the “Job of 2007”. (No kidding…)
Draft Magazine founder, Scott Kerkmans, landed the position back in March of 2007 after more than 7,000 people applied. The part-time job involves visiting breweries, festivals and bars in search of beer for the hotel chain.
I, of course, have be engaged in the same occupation for quite some time — just for free. (Anyone willing to pay me, please drop me a note.)
