Are YOU the 2010 Beerdrinker of the Year?

Get your beer resume up to date! Wynkoop Brewing Company in Denver, Colorado is embarking on their 14th annual search to find America’s ultimate beer lover. They’re running the contest to honor the most passionate and knowledgeable beer-minded men and women in the United States and they’ll reward the winner with free beer for life at Wynkoop and $250 of beer at their local brewpub or bar. The winner also gets the sweet title of 2010 Beerdrinker of the Year, their name is engraved on a trophy at the brewery and they’ll be outfitted with apparel proclaiming their achievement.

Beerdrinker of the Year Awards

Perhaps the coolest part of winning though, is their chance to brew a special beer with Wynkoop head brewer Andy Brown. That beer will be served at the 2010 Beerdrinker of the Year National Finals on February 27, 2010.

Resumes for the 2010 Beerdrinker search must include each entrant’s beer philosophy, and details on their passion for beer. Throw in some 2009 beer experiences as well. You’ll want to play up the entrant’s understanding of beer, its history and its impact on civilization, and perhaps most importantly, how the entrant educates others on the joys of great beer.

Resumes must be sent by email only to, and received by Wynkoop by no later than December 31, 2009. Each entrant will receive an email confirmation that their resume was received.

Resumes 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 National Finals on February 27, 2010.

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.
