It is true, at least in Canada! If you could combine these jobs, maaaaan...

I once saw a want ad in a Portland newspaper for a brewmaster for a microbrewery in Palau. Benefits included living in paradise, two tickets home each year, and beer. To this day I regret not applying - I mean, after all, I had just made my first batch of homebrew that didn't cause an automatic involuntary gag reflex.

Good on Sheraton for serving good beer. That lineup is pretty pedestrian, but a lot better than any hotel I've ever stayed in.

I should qualify that. Once I stayed in a hotel in Bruges, Belgium. THAT lineup put Sheraton's to shame.

Yeah, gurple, I think this would have to qualify as one of the best beer selections I've ever seen at a U.S. chain hotel. On rare occasion, I've seen hotels attached to brewpubs that had pretty stellar beer, but those are few & far between. Looks like Sheraton has all of the major styles covered, and each with an excellent, if not always best-in-class, selection. Maybe they'd ought to hold onto the current CBO...

Just in time, too. I've begun to tire of my career as a fellatio critic.

If you try to fill out the form but miss a required field, they tell you "Put down that beer and finish answering the questions!". Pretty cute. I will forgive them for misspelling "lightning" (they spelled it "lightening", which since it's also a real word, probably escaped their spelling checker), and for claiming that aluminum does not conduct electricity.

No, the best job in the world is to be a hustler in Kabukicho- Tokyo. Take a customer to a hostess bar or strip club- $10-$50 commission depending on how classy. Take one to a brothel and get anything you can charge the customer in excess of their standard rate. Perks= cheap or free if you want to go to the clubs or sleep with the girls, get to hang out in the coolest place in the world, meet lots of hot women and if your good at your job make some serious $$$
