    Working "Vacation"

    I've heard about some brewers who "train" neophytes in the beer making process during a working vacation type of set-up. There may be some charge/fee for this program, but basically one would "work" for free while learning the "business" and then leave after a set period of time.

    Anyone know of any programs like this>

    Links appreciated.

    "Programs"? No, I haven't heard of any programs. I have heard of brewers, myself included, that have taken passionate individuals under their wing to show/teach them what they can about craft brewing. Most of these situations are not advertised but rather exist on a more person-to-person basis.

    I got into a Belgian brewery for a week by just asking. Was very helpful but more in a wow, I can't believe it's that easy way. :-)

    Continental DOES fly here twice a week from Manila. A new airline called PacificFlier also flies from Manila (Clark-Angeles) at a cheaper rate. http://www.pacificflier.com/schedule

    As well, you could take China Airlines from Taipei. Or all the way from SEA. http://www.china-airlines.com/en/
    JAL from Tokyo is another option.

    You may check out some of the content on Palau here:

    The diving is superb. Fishing is phenomenal. And if you're into camping (NOT roughing it, BTW), then you can have a beautiful beach on a deserted island all to your own. No sign of "civilization". Not even airplane lights/vapor trails. It is nice! Also easy to get to Sipidan/Borneo or Brisbane/Oz from here--just in case you're absolutely nuts for the scuba. PM me for information on dates, hotels, & other. I can set you up! First beers are on me! I would love to have other brewers come and critique my operation. Experienced or not even. Cheers!
