Summer Beer Intern

No, not here at Hail the Ale! (unless you like to work for free, pay for your own drinks, and look good blogging–if so, we should talk) but working for the Chief Beer Officer at Four Points Sheraton.

WHITE PLAINS, NY – March 26, 2008 – Corporate America was changed forever a year ago when Four Points by Sheraton appointed the world’s first-ever Chief Beer Officer (CBO), Scott Kerkmans. After a year in office the resident CBO has realized that a dream job can come with a nightmare work load. Scott is seeking a little sudsy help by kicking off a world wide search for a Best Brews Summer intern. The lucky lad or lass will assist the CBO with his Best Brews duties including beer tasting, trend research and brewery relations.

As part of his undertaking the resident CBO is seeking a yeasty soul over the age of 21 with a love for lager and a thirst for industry knowledge. “I am excited to share my knowledge and experiences with someone who is as passionate about the brewing community as I am” said Kerkmans. The search for the Best Brews Summer Intern will kick off on March 26th with ads in the Wall Street Journal and a number of intern job boards like MonsterTrak and craigslist. This isn’t your frat brother’s job though,  the internship will come with the frothy perks of tasting and toasting, but will also include learning the inner workings of the Four Points by Sheraton Best Brews program and the ever expanding craft beer industry and beer business. Like all executive internships, this position will start pouring in June and tap out in August.

Check out the press release for details.

  1. I would like to point out that your little article insinuates that a fraternity brother cant learn the inter workings of the Four Points by Sheraton Best Brews program. I would like to point out that just because we are members of a Fraternity it does not mean that we are incapable of learning the inter workings of a program such as yours. I would like to point out as well that your comments are somewhat offensive to a fraternity brother and there’s no reason for a comment such as that.

  2. @TKE 260: I would like to point out that the article isn’t little, it is brief. I would like to point point out that the quoted text is from the linked press release. I would like to point out that I didn’t write the press release, Sheraton did. I would like to point out that you should direct your comments towards them.
