Job posting: Free beer and $20K to hike trail

(CNN) -- Love hiking? Love beer?

One lucky hiker who wants to take on the Appalachian Trail will get paid $20,000 to do it.

Devils Backbone Brewing Company is accepting applications for what it calls its "Chief Hiking Officer."

The person who lands this gig will trek the entire 2,200 mile trail from Georgia to Maine, consuming and sharing plenty of brews along the way.

The job comes with a $20,000 stipend and free travel to the trail-head.

Gear is also included, but no hotel expenses. This is for an experienced hiker who is comfortable sleeping under the stars every night.

Devils Backbone estimates it will take five to seven months to complete the assignment which starts next year.
