I don't know how many US newspapers have a beer column, but mine does. Alas, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle Beer Buddies are moving on. Fortunately, the column isn't leavng with them, and the paper is looking for a replacement. I doubt anyone who reads this blog is willing and/or able, but it's nice to get the word out. Whatever else blogging is good for, it can surely provide the print world with future talent (as it's currently doing in the world of political commentary).
If you'd like to become the Democrat and Chronicle's next beer columnist, contact Lead Local Editor/Life Catherine Roberts at (585) 258-2310 or cathyr@DemocratandChronicle.com. We will require a résumé and sample columns.They're probably looking for primarily someone who knows the local scene, even if it comes at the expense of a certain level of beer geekery.
