I got an email about this and figured I knew a few good beer drinkers/cyclists in Emmaus.

Good luck,

2009 Beerdrinker of the Year Search is Underway

Wynkoop Brewing Company’s annual search seeks America’s
ultimate beer lover, adds Rookie of the Year honor

(Denver, Colorado) – Wynkoop Brewing Company is once again seeking beer resumes from the nation’s most beer-minded men and women for the 2009 Beerdrinker of the Year contest. The 13th annual contest seeks and honors the most passionate, knowledgeable beer lover and supporter in the United States.

The 2009 Beerdrinker of the Year wins free beer for life at Wynkoop Brewing Company and $250 of beer at their local brewpub or beer bar. They also win apparel proclaiming them The 2009 Beerdrinker of the Year, and have their name engraved on the Beerdrinker of the Year trophy at Wynkoop.

“The whole ex-beer-ience has been a blast,” say reigning 2008 Beerdrinker of the Year Matt Venzke, of Hampton, Virginia. “Joining the prestigious ranks of Beerdrinker winners has led to private brewery tours, much free beer and a greatly expanded circle of beery friends. I’ve also had the pleasure of representing Beer Nation in various newspaper, TV and radio appearances. My parents are very proud.”

Resumes for the 2009 Beerdrinker search must include each entrant’s beer drinking philosophy, and details on their passion for beer and their 2008 beer experiences.

Resumes should detail the entrant’s understanding of beer and its history and importance to civilization, and the entrant’s efforts to educate others to the joys of great beer.

Resumes must be sent by email only to, and received by Wynkoop by no later than December 31, 2008.

For complete details entrants should visit .

Venzke, an aircraft maintenance manager and devout beer taster and traveler, weathered two hours of difficult and often funny questions from the Beerdrinker of the Year Finals judges in Denver last February. Venzke notes that while the grilling was tough, it was also a rare brand of fun that America’s beer nuts should strive to be a part of.

“Over the past few months I’ve met many beer lovers out there who’d make great contestants,” he says. “Homebrewers, bloggers, beer club organizers, amateur writers, and people with world-class beer cellars. These people should enter this contest.”

To pay tribute to some of these entrants, Wynkoop is now adding a Rookie of the Year award to the best first-time Beerdrinker of the Year entrant. Based on his resume in last year’s contest, Virgil Grider of Urbana, Illinois is the first recipient of the award. A recent arrival in the craft beer culture, he tasted over 1100 different beers last year. He wins a special Rookie of the Year Beerdrinker shirt.

Resumes for the Beerdrinker of the Year are reviewed by the nation’s beer experts, beer journalists and previous Beerdrinker winners. The top three entrants are flown to Wynkoop Brewing Company (at Wynkoop’s expense) for the Beerdrinker of the Year finals on February 21, 2009.

At the finals, a panel of wigged & robed judges (comprised of the nation’s best beer minds and previous Beerdrinker winners) grills the finalists and picks the 2009 winner. The event is open to the public and starts at 2 PM.

A six-pack of rules and details:
• Resumes cannot exceed three 8 1⁄2" x 11" pages and must be written in 12-point or larger font, in Word format.
• Resumes must include the entrant’s personal philosophy of beer drinking, and details of their 2008 beer experiences.
• Resumes must include the entrant’s home brewpub or beer bar, and T-shirt size.
• Do not enter if you are currently employed by a brewery.
• Resumes must be emailed to Wynkoop Brewing Company as an email Word document attachment to .

Note: This year, Beerdrinker of the Year resumes sent via any means other than email to the above address will not be accepted.
