Those with a real love for beer who also have the gift of gab make great tour guides for local breweries. You need to be charismatic, enjoy witty banter and be able to organize groups of people. Most importantly, though, you need to have a thorough understanding of your brewery's beer-making process, the beers they sell, interesting trivia and what the different beers taste like. And most brewery tours end with a tasting sample at the end, which is fun for everyone.

Of course, you need to be a responsible person to have this job. You must be punctual, of drinking age, and know how to manage possibly intoxicated people. Most tour guides will learn on the job, but you can land a tour guide job more easily if you already have knowledge of the brewing process. And a good beer palate certainly won't hurt, either.
