Here’s the scene: You drag yourself into work on a cold, dreary Friday morning.
It’s been a long week, and the boss is busting your hump to get that big project done, even though the weekend is mere hours away.
So you get to work and crack your first beer at 9 a.m. Then a second. You’ll have a few more before noon.
That didn’t go like you thought it would, did it?
Become a Beer Taster and Get Paid to Sample Suds
Full disclosure, this job is located in Greenwich, east of London in the U.K.
So if you can’t jet across the pond once a week in your private jet or handle cold, rainy weather, this job isn’t for you (but there are tons of others posted on The Penny Hoarder Jobs page on Facebook).
Meantime is looking for an experienced beer drinker who can tell an IPA from a pale ale, work with a team and provide consistent informed feedback on the suds they are tasting.
You’ll work three hours a week, on Friday mornings. The specific salary is not listed, but the listing says it is “competitive… with beer benefits.”
To apply, join LinkedIn, then write a 30-word post about why you should get the job with the hashtag #pickmemeantime. Meantime will review your profile to see if you’re truly beer-worthy and then will pick three candidates for a taste test.
Didn’t land the job? There are still plenty of ways to drink good beer for cheap.
