Okay, I know I did a posting recently on why my job kicks butt, but I've got nothing on the guy in the photo. His name is Scott Kerkmans, and he was just hired to be the chief beer officer the Four Points by Sheraton hotel chain. Chief. Beer. Officer. That's his job title. He researches craft brews to stock in their hotels.
Kerkmans was profiled this morning on National Public Radio's Morning Edition.
Best quote from the broadcast: "At first, I thought my friends would be happy for me. Well, it turns out they're just jealous." Yeah, I'm thinking if you ever bitch about the stress at work you'll be getting no sympathy from them.
