Bar offers $12k beer-drinking internship

A craft beer chain is giving three interns the chance to travel the US and report back on their beer-drinking experiences  – all while being paid $12,000 for the pleasure.

World of Beer (WOB), based in Florida, has 77 locations nationwide and is calling upon beer lovers to enter its first ever “Drink it Intern” scheme. Three successful applicants will spend a summer travelling the US, drinking beer, meeting brewers and reporting back on their experiences. What’s more, the internship pays $12,000 and covers all travel, meals, and lodging expenses.

In return, each intern will be expected to document their beer-drinking experiences by blogging, capturing video, taking photos, Facebooking, Tweeting, sharing Vines, Periscoping to search out the best craft beer and food the world has to offer.

Sound to good to be true to us. Where’s the catch?

World of Beer insists their isn’t one. “We’re inviting a team of interns to travel the world, hopping from brewery to brewery, WOB tavern to WOB tavern to explore beer for themselves and share their stories with WOB drinkers across the country”, the team said on its website.

Alyssa Ahern, of WOB,  representative, told Munchies that the internship was being offered because the company is all about providing a global experience.

“Our mantra is ‘drink it in,’ and so ‘drink it intern’ was just a natural extension of what WOB stands for,” she said.

Interviews are taking place across the US now with the deadline for entries 26 March. Prospective interns can apply in one of two ways; by submitting a video, or attending one of eight in-tavern interview sessions. The lucky three will start their beer-fuelled adventure on 25 April, and have their work published work in Draft Magazine.
