Devils Backbone Brewing is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just a few miles from the Appalachian Trail, so we can get our fill of fresh air at 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 Devils Backbone is doing! This spring they are accepting applications for their 2021 Chief Hiking Officer. That’s right: they are going to pay someone to hike the Appalachian Trail in 2021. They’ll outfit their Chief Hiking Officer with gear, fly ‘em to the trailhead, and throw some big ol’ beer parties along the way. Plus, there’s a $20k stipend.
Qualifications? You’ve gotta love hiking and beer. They 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 Devils Backbone Brewing is looking for: Click Here.
Ready For The Challenge
Hiking the AT is no joke. It’s 2,200 miles huffing your pack all over the Wild East. You’re sleeping under the stars and there’s no food delivery service (trust us, we’ve checked). Our CHO has to prove to us that they are prepared for this once in a lifetime adventure.
Creative Content Expert
The only real ask of our CHO other than hiking the AT is to send us some content that we can share with our followers to cheer you on as you go! Know how to work a camera? Great. Know how to work a camera and get a bunch of likes? Even better.
Experienced Hiker & Wilderness Adventurer
Since this is one of the toughest survival experiences of all time, we wouldn’t feel right sending just anyone out there to give it the ol’ college try. Make sure your entry summarizes your hiking and adventure experience.
Passionate About Craft Beer
Goes without saying…but we’re a brewery, so our CHO should be passionate about enjoying a delicious beer post-hike. And of course, you might even get to assist in some product research. Yep, that’s exactly what you think it means.
