Best Job in the World: Part III

29 Jun

Two words: Beer. Taster.

Imagine spending your days in a cool brewery tasting the different kinds of beer. Maybe add in a sandwich and comfortable couch. It’s a pretty simple but sweet image – count me in.

What does it take to be a beer taster? Based upon advertising, men like beer better than women do and often, more than they like women. Though men account for 72.8% of beer sales, women are better beer tasters because they can better detect undesirable chemicals such as 3-methyl-2-butene-1-thoil that make beer taste “skunky”. In addition, women have a better sense of smell, which is crucial when judging the taste of beer.


Whatever the science may be, how cool is that job? Find out how to be a professional beer taster.
