"In celebration of the simple pleasure of a perfectly poured glass of beer and the launch of its Best Brews program, Four Points by Sheraton hotels today officially kicked-off its Chief Beer Officer (CBO) executive search and began making room in the executive suite for its newest chief."

Hmmm, anybody on this board qualified for this job?

Probably none of us. We'd all be stymied when chosing beers for the list because we'd be saying, "I could do better than this...."

What a scam. It's just a data-mining ploy.

Once chosen, the CBO will assume the post in mid-January and begin acting as an independent, part-time consultant for Four Point's newly-launched Best Brews program.

So, no pay, no actual employment, and no benefits.

It's like giving your recipe to a commercial brewery at the end of a homebrew contest, except without the $500, medal, participation in reformulation, or useful bragging rights.

I'm surprised they're not charging a $9.99 application fee.
