Aldi has launched a nationwide search for an official beer taster, and applications are now open for what’s already being dubbed the “dream job”.

There’s been some pretty sought-after jobs knocking around as of late, with everything from being paid an actual wage to play Animal Crossing, to becoming a professional wine taster, a part-time doughnut testerbinge watching Netflix in bed, and getting to take free trips on holiday with your dog, all catching the eyes of those looking for a side-hustle.

But this is one for the lager-loving Mancs out there.

If you’d consider yourself an expert on beer, a pint perfectionist, or maybe even a connoisseur of cans, then Aldi might have the perfect job for you, as the budget supermarket retailer is on the look-out for an official beer taster to help review its next range of beers, lagers, and ciders.

Successful applicants will get to work from home, and be tasked with drinking and reviewing the new collection of drinks in exchange for their opinion.

This feedback will be used to inform Aldi bosses in their key decision-making for the next range.

From craft ales to IPAs, Aldi’s official beer taster will be sent 10 different products to review, and the job description explains that the official beer taster must have “a passion for beer and pints of enthusiasm”, as they will be asked for thoughts on the whole line of drinks.

“We’re looking for someone with passion and excitement when it comes to craft ale, but who can honestly review our range and provide suggestions as to how we might improve it for next year,” explained Julie Ashfield – Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK.
