If you or a client are a keen hiker who also happens to love beer, then boy have we got some great news.
Devils Backbone, a brewery located in the US state of Virginia, has posted a job application/competition hybrid on its website, seeking to sponsor one lucky hiker to trek the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Main.
The trail covers 14 states, 3,500 kilometres and takes just over five months to tackle, so it’s not for the faint-hearted. However, the job doesn’t just entail hiking, the CHO (chief hiking officer) is also required to host some beer-related events along the way.
“Qualifications? You’ve gotta love hiking and beer. We mean really love it. We’re talking 2,200 miles, camping under the stars, pack-in-pack-out for 5-7 months love it,” the brewery said on its website.
The brewery’s website warns that the job is no joke, and will require an experienced hiker and wilderness adventurer who also happens to be a creative content specialist as well as having a passion for craft beer.
To enter, you’ll have to submit a one minute video by 31 July as well as a few minor details including your Instagram handle.
If a five-month hike isn’t really your thing, the brewery is also giving away loads of outdoor gear for your weekend adventures if you tell them about your 2020 outdoor goals with the hashtag #slowbynature and #sweepstakes.
