I made the finals for the 2011 Beer Drinker of the Year competition sponsored by Wynkoop Brewery. I will be heading to Denver in February to compete “head-to-head” to see who takes home the prize. This is the announcement I received (I took the other names out … I wasn’t sure if I should post them or not):
“Hello 2011 Beerdrinker of the Year entrants,

This is exciting! I’m looking forward to the trip… not to mention that Wynkoop’s is on the “125 Places to Drink Beer” list … Yeah!
