Like beer? 

We know we do. We love beer pong on Roombas, the idea of Brooklyn Brewery's rooftop restaurant and beer garden, and even weird Ben & Jerry's flavored beers. In fact, we've always wanted to get paid for it.

According to a report in the Washington City Paper, it's looking like a distinct possibility.

The Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. is offering a new position on their team: beer historian.


Yeah, you heard right.

Apart from the obvious job of drinking beer for research (let’s give that a second to really sink in), you would be doing intense research on all kinds of beer from all over the world. 

Which brings us to a second job perk: travel. 


You’ll be traveling around the world documenting your beer-ventures, and getting paid $65k to do it. 

The ideal candidate, according to the official job posting, should have an abundance of beer knowledge, as well as skills in researching and documenting the bubbly goodness (and about stuff in general). 

People with advanced degrees in business, brewing, food, history, or something of the like are encouraged to apply.

You can finally put that history degree to good use by mixing it with your drinking habits, whoda thunk it?!

Add in your CV, cover letter, and three references, and you’re all set. Applications are due by August 10, so get your beer hat on and head on over to D.C., friends. 

Turn your happy hour into your happy life.
