U.S. Army Seeks a Brewmaster

Have you ever wanted to brew beer for the U.S. Army? Well, here’s your chance.

The Army is seeking a civilian brewmaster to be based in Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma.

Here are the job duties, according to the job posting: “Plans and manages the day-to-day operation of a brewery. Prepares and/or oversees the preparation of beer following and creating recipes. Develops operating budget, identifying labor, equipment and supply cost elements. Controls pricing, beer production methods and techniques. Supervises assigned staff.”

There are few other details, such as the epic salary of $22,020.00 a year and no benefits.

Many questions remain.

Will the brewmaster be able to name his creations, or will they have such monikers as “Pale Ale 3-500-23RH7.”?

There are many, many, many soldiers, officers and retired veterans in the Army. Just how big are those fermenting tanks?

Will members of the Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard even drink the stuff? Or will they demand their own brewmasters?

Are there going to be clandestine missions to deliver these brews into Iraq and Afghanistan, which do not allow the consumption of alcohol (wink, wink)?

Finally, will the Army win any medals at the Great American Beer Festival?

If you want to apply, make it quick. The application period ends tomorrow (Tuesday, May 10, 2011).

Salud! I mean, “Salute”!
