This isn't a joke. Three lucky folks are about to have the summer of their lives — and one of them could be you!

Tampa's World of Beer is hiring three interns to — again, I'm not kidding — travel the world, drink beer, and report back on the experience. And the $12,000 payment? That's on top of travel and lodging expenses, all of which World of Beer will cover.

The trip is technically a social media internship, so the franchise is seeking individuals with thorough understandings of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. The job description doesn't seem to specifically say that you have to be a college student to apply, so it might be worth a chance to try your luck — even if you're not currently in school. I know I'm certainly tempted to!

Regardless, I'm so excited for whoever they hire for this incredible opportunity. If someone who reads this applies and gets the job, please report back — I'll buy you a celebratory pint!
