A brewery in Virginia has an incredible job offer for one lucky person and that gig includes hiking and drinking beer. Yes, you read that correctly.

The Devil’s Backbone Brewing Co., based in Lexington, is looking for what they are calling a “Chief Hiking Officer” for a gig that will start in 2021, according to UPI.com in a piece published Monday.

According to a description on the brewery’s website, “That’s right: we’re going to pay someone to hike the Appalachian Trail in 2021. We’ll outfit our CHO with gear, fly ’em to the trail head, and throw some big ol’ beer parties along the way. Plus, there’s a $20k stipend.”(SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)
