Oh boy, this past Saturday was one for the books. After grabbing coffee from our favorite local café we jumped into the car and made our way toward World of Beer in Greensboro, NC. Afroman, T-Swift, Cherub, Fall Out Boy, and Lady Gaga set the tone for what would end up being the most fun interview we’ve ever had. We’re semi-finalists for WOB’s Drink It Intern. If you haven’t heard of it yet, it’s a summer long internship where the winners get paid to travel, drink beer, and basically document their craft beer adventures. In other words a dream job for Bailey and I. We submitted a 60 second video the end of March and were chosen as semi-finalists out of over 7,000 submissions!
We feel incredibly lucky to have made it this far. Hopefully, we were able to awkwardly charm the judges enough that they will advance us as finalist. Keep the dream alive, you know? We spent ten minutes talking to the judges and patrons about our love for beer, it’s always sunny, our despair over this being the last summer living in the same state, our matching tattoos, dream breweries to visit, and a few other things. We also got to meet some other awesome semi-finalists from NC and surrounding states and loved getting to connect with other beer lovers. We are hoping to find out next week if we made it to the next round and love you all for supporting us on our journey. Whether we get this internship or not we have big plans for the blog and hope to travel this summer and will add videos to our blog soon so stay tuned!
P.S. If you think we’d be great for the internship make sure to go tell World of Beer you want Haley & Bailey aka Dream Team as your 2017 Drink It Interns!
