Make $12,000 Traveling the US and Drinking Beer

World of Beer is back with another Drink It Internship that will give you the opportunity to make $12,000 traveling the US and drinking beer. If you’ve never visited a World of Beer location, the selection of craft beers, food, and the staff’s expansive knowledge show why the name works. It really is a world of beer. And what better company to fund three interns travel and beer experiences than the company that’s all about sharing the global story behind the beer? Hit up the Drink It Intern section of the World of Beer site below to submit your entry, and then cross your fingers you get chosen to explore, share, photograph, blog and try new things while still getting paid $12,000 for something that shouldn’t be considered work. Applications are due by March 26th, so you have around three weeks to create your magnum opus and get it to World of Beer.

National Beer Day… Restaurant Deals To Help You Celebrate

National Beer Day is here… and it’s time to celebrate.

Observed April 7 each year, it’s a celebration of the beginning of the end of Prohibition in the U.S. That was the date in 1933 when the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect under President Franklin Roosevelt. The law allowed beer and wine to be sold and consumed, as Forbes noted.

These days, alcohol is definitely legal. And Thursday, it’s even cheaper than usual. Here are a few retailers running deals on National Beer Day, as reported by various media outlets:

Thirsty Thursday… Watermelon Beer

We know it’s not technically watermelon season yet, but the watermelon in the store looked so good it was hard to pass up. We got a quarter of a watermelon and trekked over to the beer section to find the perfect one to go with the watermelon; enter Shock Top Wheat Beer. Both the watermelon and the beer complement each other really well, and one doesn’t outshine the other. This is the perfect drink for a hot day after work when you just need a drink (or two) to unwind.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 watermelon, cut up into chunks
  • 2-4 White Beers or Wheat Beers, we used Shock Top

Instructions:

  1. Place the watermelon chunks in your blender. Puree until smooth, then pour into a sifter over a bowl. Strain until only the juice is left and there is no pulp -chill for at least an hour. Fill a glass with the beer and pour the watermelon juice on top. Serve immediately.

This Hanukkah, give the gift of He’Brew beer

Here’s one way to toast the start of Hanukkah: Head to your local liquor store at sundown for some He’Brew: The Chosen Beer brews by New York-based Shmaltz Brewing Co.

Hanukkah, Chanukah: Pass the Beer, a dark ale brewed with eight varieties of malts and eight varieties of hops. The festive beer is also 8 percent alcohol by volume — a nod to Hanukkah’s eight nights.

Reunion Ale ’14 — A Beer for Hope, a collaboration with Georgia-based Terrapin Beer Co., is a dark imperial brown ale brewed with toasted coconut, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee and cocoa nibs. A portion of proceeds benefits the Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research.

Rejewvenator, a mix between a Belgian-style dubbel ale and a dopplebock European-style lager, was brewed with California merlot wine and Concord grapes from New York.

St. Lenny’s — The Immaculate Collaboration, a Belgian-style rye double IPA, was brewed in partnership with Cathedral Square Brewery in St. Louis. The boozy beer is 10 percent alcohol by volume.

Jewbilation 18 celebrates He’Brew’s 18th anniversary with 18 malts and 18 hops. The black session barleywine is not 18 percent alcohol by volume (that would be a little much) but it’s still a winter warmer at 12.4 percent ABV.

The 5th Annual He’Brew Gift Pack comes with eight bottles of special release Shmaltz beers — one for every night of Hanukkah. Jewbilation 18, Hanukkah, Chanukah: Pass the Beer, Reunion Ale ’14 — A Beer for Hope and St. Lenny’s — The Immaculate Collaboration are all included in the gift pack. Also inside: A custom glass, Hanukkah candles and instructions on building your own beer menorah.
