Just in time for Oktoberfest, Move.org is giving one lucky winner a chance to travel America — and drink beer (responsibly) along the way. In a new contest, the company will pay someone $2,000 to drink beer across America to find out what beer capitals of the US live up to the hype.
The Beer Baron will get paid to “drink (responsibly) on the job and will receive *$2,000 to cover their beer tab + $1,000 reimbursed for travel costs,” according to Move.Org. If they fall in love with the city, Move.org will give them an additional $500 to turn the “beer-cation” into a staycation and move a certified beer-lover to the beer capital they reviewed. Translation: The company will give you $500 in moving expenses if you actually move there.
So what exactly does the winner have to do for this gig, other than drink beer?
The company simply ask the person for a review of their sampled city to see if it hits all the high notes or if it falls flat. The winner must choose one city from the Best Cities for Lovers report.
In summary, the winner will receive:
- $1,000 for travel accommodations to celebrate Oktoberfest in one of the nation’s beer capitals.
- $2,000 for their hard work and review of their sampled city.
- Up to $500 to help cover moving costs to your beloved beer capital, if desired.
Who should apply?
- Beer enthusiasts who know their brew.
- Those who geek out on craft brews.
- You must be of legal drinking age (21 years or older) and eligible to work within the United States.
Applications are open now until Sep 10, 2021. After reviewing the applications, Move.org will announce the chosen Chief Beer Baron on September 15th, 2021, and they must travel within 90 days of being selected.
