Yes, you heard us right — a professional beer taster is an actual job. The Meantime Brewing Company is currently hiring and they specifically want someone to try out all of their new products and give them valuable feedback. Sound too good to be true?

What This Job Is Not

First off, let’s dispel what this job definitely isn’t. It’s not an excuse to get drunk at work. The brewery isn’t just looking for some average schlub off the street that’s looking for free drinks.

What It Is

This part-time position requires someone that truly loves beer, but more than that, someone that actually has knowledge of the industry, i.e. hops, wheat, malt, etc. If you can’t speak to the characteristics and quality of a beer and you don’t understand the industry, this likely isn’t the position for you.

“Have you ever dreamt of being paid to drink beer?” reads the job posting from Meantime Brewery. “Well, that could soon become a reality as we’re looking for beer lovers to earn a living, tasting new and innovative beers. Yes, this could just be the best job in the world.”

The Details Of The Position

The work week for this position consists of a grueling three hours every Friday morning dedicated to beer tasting. Tough schedule, right? You’d be required to give thoughtful feedback of the products tested, so no beer brain allowed!

If you thought we were just pulling your leg this time, check out how you can apply for this totally real position as described by the brewery: “Please write a 30-word post on LinkedIn as to why you should get the job. Feel free to use video or photos and be sure to include the hashtag #pickmemeantime on your LinkedIn post, too, so that we can see your entry! We’ll then review your profile and shortlist 3 candidates for a final beer-tasting round.”
