Smithsonian Institution hiring first ever beer historian

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 13:22:52 GMT

(FoxNews.com) - It's the career opportunity of a lifetime for sudsy sippers across the country.

The Smithsonian Institute's Museum of American History is looking to hire a beer historian for a three-year appointment based in Washington, D.C.

Museum curator Paula Johnson told the Washington City Paper that the job is a brand new position funded by the Brewers Association--a national trade group that represents craft beer makers and that the Smithsonian is looking for a candidate who can "focus and dedicate efforts towards research, documentation, and collecting American brewing history."

"We have collected food history for many years, so when we were doing the research for the exhibition, which is all about big changes in the post WW II era in how and what we eat, one thing we were curious about is the craft beer movement," Johnson says. "We were looking at wine, coffee, cheese, artisanal bread, and farmers markets. Well, this movement with small-scale, local regional beer is part of the ethos."

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - No one has matched the jackpot-winning numbers in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, and the prize has increased to an estimated $478 million.

The next drawing will be Saturday. Nearly three months have passed without a winner of the big prize.

The chance of winning the Powerball is incredibly small, at 292.2 million-to-1. But players have much better odds, of about 1 in 25, of winning smaller prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million.
