Sorry for the delay in my “blogging.” I’ve been busy experiencing life (smile).
Ok, as you may (or may not) know, I was one of the 3 finalists for Wynkoop Brewery’s Beerdrinker of the Year competition for 2011. I was up against some tough competition and, unfortunately, I came out on the short end of the stick … my congratulations to Phil for winning this year!
Wynkoop hosted a wonderful event. Friday night was a Beer/Food-pairing dinner … will post that soon. Saturday was the actual competition. After a 3-hour grilling by 7 judges I was ready to just sit back and enjoy a couple of cold ones! I think my downfall started during the blind taste-testing when I mistakenly identified Duvel as a Colt 45. Oh well, win some and lose some!
Here’s a few random pics from the activities…
Of course, my wife stated that I can accurately call myself Near Beerdrinker of the Year!
Watch out next year!
