Brewery Will Pay You $20K To Hike The Appalachian Trail While Drinking Tons Of Beer

Dream gig.

Devils Backbone Brewing Company is accepting applications through July 31 for what they’re calling their Chief Hiking Officer.

You’ll be spending a lot of time in nature, drinking even more beer, creating some fun content for the brewery, and getting paid for it. $20,000 over the course of 5-7 months.

Here’s what their website says:

Devils Backbone is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just a few miles from the Appalachian Trail, so we can get our fill of fresh air any time. But folks always tell us how they wish they had the time to trek the AT from Georgia to Maine. So, why couldn’t we sponsor one lucky hiker and help them check “conquer the AT” off their bucket list?

Well, that’s what we’re doing! This spring we’re accepting applications for our 2021 Chief Hiking Officer. That’s right: we’re going to pay someone to hike the Appalachian Trail in 2021. We’ll outfit our CHO with gear, fly ‘em to the trail head, and throw some big ol’ beer parties along the way. Plus, there’s a $20k stipend.

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. If this sounds like your dream job, read up on exactly what we’re looking for in our CHO below.

What’s the catch? There isn’t one. Get on it.

Cheers, y’all.
