Brew­ery ad­ver­tises job for ‘beer taster’

Lesotho Times - - Cartoons & Puzzles -

LON­DON­DERRY — A beer com­pany in North­ern Ire­land posted an ad­ver­tise­ment in a lo­cal news­pa­per seek­ing a ‘beer taster.’

Ac­cord­ing to the BBC, the per­son se­lected for the job, listed in the Derry Jour­nal, will be re­quired to taste up to 40 craft beers once a month at the Walled City Brew­ery in Lon­don­derry.

“Train­ing will be pro­vided but ideally we are look­ing for an un­der­stand­ing of the na­ture of craft beers, for some­one who knows a lot about fla­vors,” mas­ter brewer James Huey said.

Huey told the Belfast Tele­graph the brew­ery had re­ceived 137 ap­pli­cants, in­clud­ing some will­ing to pay, but said only a cer­tain num­ber of peo­ple are ca­pa­ble of ful­fill­ing the com­pany’s needs.

“But only 10% of the pop­u­la­tion can be mas­ter tasters,” Huey said. “I am blind to some fla­vors, so we need some­one who can com­ple­ment my own work and de­ci­pher all the dif­fer­ent fla­vors.”

The lucky per­son se­lected for the job will not be paid, but a taxi and food will be pro­vided at the end of the work day.
