Looking for a few good beer drinkers

Yes, it’s time to polish that beer resume. The hunt is on for the 2007 Beerdrinker of the Year.

Highlights from the press release:

Wynkoop Brewing Company – Denver’s first brewpub and one of America’s most respected microbrewing establishments – is now conducting its search for the 2007 Beerdrinker of the Year.

The annual contest seeks and honors the most passionate, knowledgeable beer lover in the United States. Wynkoop is now seeking “beer resumes” from the nation’s most beer-minded men and women.

Resumes must include each entrant’s beerdrinking philosophy and details highlighting their passion for beer. Resumes should provide evidence of the entrant’s understanding of beer, its history, and its importance to civilization.

Resumes must be received by Wynkoop by no later than December 31, 2006.

Resumes for the Beerdrinker of the Year award are reviewed by a collection of the nation’s beer experts, beer journalists and previous Beerdrinker winners. The top three entrants will be flown to Wynkoop Brewing Company (at Wynkoop’s expense) for the Beerdrinker of the Year finals on February 24, 2007.

• Resumes must include the entrant’s personal philosophy of beerdrinking.
