I guarantee I would be very thorough when considering beers for inclusion in the club's refreshments. And I would see to it no Pilot Club member would ever have to experience the ordeal of a Pokie shortage. drunken

Not good enough.

You need to commission a study on the aerodynamics of different Pokie brands. Maybe have dimples put on them.

some of us are getting older and need help, range-wise.

It is a little concerning that the job's Knowledge, Skills & Abilities does not include "Excellent beer tasting & selection capabilities" or "Experience in hiring wait staff to provide complimentary in-seat beverage service for P-Club members"...
