5 Jobs That Let You Drink at Work

by / Monday, 19 August 2019 / Published in Random Ravings

Some of us have aspirations to be a police officer, a firefighter, a doctor; and some of us just want to be able to drink at work. That’s right, mixing work and pleasure. The good stuff. Sound too good to be true? We assure you it’s not. There are actually more positions than you think that require, encourage, or at least allow a little alcohol on the job. Here’s the ones that might surprise you.



1.  Brewmaster

Well, maybe this one isn’t quite surprising, but we had to add it to the list because, who wouldn’t want to be a brewmaster? Becoming a brewmaster requires knowing a LOT about beer and making your own. Of course, you won’t be allowed to get smashed, but in most cases brewmasters can sip their creations for approval.


2. Food critic

While alcohol may not be food, it is necessary to cleanse the palate a bit. Chances are no one orders a filet mignon with water, and the perfect wine is a must. To become a food critic, it is common to have studied the culinary arts, you enjoy food more than the average person, and some writing experience  or a popular food blog is helpful.


3. Travel writer

A travel writer has one of the most unique jobs you can imagine. It’s more about the travel than anything, and amongst your travels you advise other people on what to enjoy, especially how to lounge, relax, and most likely have a drink or two. Becoming a travel writer typically requires a background in journalism or communications, or several years as a talented freelance writer.


4. Salesperson

Being a successful salesperson for a big company typically means building strong relationships. What’s the key ingredient in building relationships- a lot of alcohol. As a salesperson you might not actually be totally thrilled at the amount of time you’ll have to spend at a bar, but once you land those clients, the payout can pay for your liver damage.


5. Chef

Where there is food, there is also alcohol. Chefs often use alcohol to prepare some of their finest meals. This means that as long as you drink responsibly and can convince your boss of it, sipping a glass of wine should be acceptable. Becoming a chef is all about getting experience in the kitchen, and while you may stay in high school, the best way is to attend cooking school and start working at fine restaurants after that.
