“Adventure seekers and storytellers, beer experts or novices, brewery nerds and foodie fans all open to apply,” the company wrote on its website.

In an official job description for the company's Drink It internship program, World of Beer said it's looking for three interns to share their experiences while traveling the globe to visit breweries and World of Beer taverns.

The company wants outgoing, social media mavens with a passion for beer -- and they're willing to pay them $12,000 plus expenses, according to Thrillist.

To be considered for the internship, beer lovers must share a one-minute video explaining his or her “passion and interest for the position.”

Applications are available on the company's website. Alternately, applicants can show up for any of a number of in-person interviews at World of Beer taverns across the country.

You don't have to be a college student to apply for the internships, although you must be over 21. The positions aren't full-time. Candidates have to either be U.S. citizens or have permanent authorization to work in America.

World of Beer will contact finalists for the position on March 28.
