This Saturday will witness the 2013 Beerdrinker of the Year Finals at Wynkoop Brewing Company. As usual, it’s all about building beer enthusiasm, ambeersadorship, adventure, tasting LOTS of beers all over, and sharing that love with others.

“These super beer geeks must have a deep understanding of how beer is made, its many styles and its importance in advancing civilization. They must have a vast array of beer tasting experiences and be shining ambassadors for the culture of fine beer.

The 2013 finalists will compete in the Beerdrinker of the Year Finals on February 23, at 2 PM, at Wynkoop Brewing Company. The event’s open to the public and admission is free.”

Marty Jones of Wynkoop, the driving force de beer of the event, has invited Ginger (yours truly) to be a finals judge this year. Sweet! So if you’ll be there, come say hello. As judges we ‘get’ to wear wigs and robes – rest assured I’ll have a few surprises up my roomy sleeve as well.

Everyone who enjoys beer should consider applying for this in the future. Here’s why:

    Beer is universal

  • Being a beer drinker and ambassador is fun!
  • You’re bringing beer to life, shedding positive light on the entire idea of community and meeting new folks constantly
  • You get beer for life at Wynkoop when you win
  • You’re home beer bar gets to make a big deal out of it – as they should for all finalists and winners

As educators, researchers and consultants, we’re honored to be included in this very lively event that helps continue to elevate beer in America. Thanks, Marty!
