Can you sip an imperial IPA and pick out all 11 hop varieties used in the beer?
Are you constantly identifying obscure hop scents and flavors, like “early frost blueberry must” and “expired canned pineapple,” despite everyone telling you that you’re full of shit?
Do you sniff a hoppy beer, say “they should make an air-freshener out of that” and then make an air-freshener out of that?
If you answered “yes!” to all three questions, then we want you to write for DRAFT’s newest venture: Hop Times…Life on Hops!
With this new hoppy publication, we’re harvesting the gritty stories behind our favorite beer ingredient. Stories like: “Hop Dealers Behind Bars” and “Experimental Hop Flavors That Never Went Public” (spoiler: a hop that smells like summer L.A. gridlock was a bad idea). Think you’ve got what it takes?
If so, send an email, complete with resume and a 500 word essay detailing which hop represents you best, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you really want to get our attention, Tweet us at @DRAFTMag, and tell us which hop variety reps you in 140 characters or less.
Best of luck!
(If you actually sent an email to that address, it’s time you check the calendar).
