In September Lyke2Drink reported from the Great American Beer Festival that Four Points by Sheraton was kicking off the Best Brews program nationwide to position the chain as beer friendly. Now the company has launched a nationwide search for a part-time Chief Beer Officer.
According to a press release for the company "Candidates should possess a bubbly personality, brew eloquence, and a rich knowledge of beer." The Chief Beer Officer will start their duties in mid-January as an independent consultant and will chronicle beer activities on a Four Points beer blog. Ads for the position have been placed in the Wall Street Journal, HotJobs and Monster.com.
The Brewers Association has designated Four Points as the group's preferred hotel. Four Points hotels around the world will offer local, regional and imported craft beers from a list of 300 bottled and draught beers. Participating properties will offer a minimum of four draught beers and a selection of up to 20 bottled beers.
