Michelin chef wins UK Beerdrinker of Year

Hey, they have a Beerdrinker of the Year in the UK, too.

Unlike current US champion Diane Catanzaro the UK award winner has Michelin stars as well.

Michel Roux was honored at Wednesday’s annual dinner of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group (APPBG).

The chef of Le Gavroche in London’s Mayfair, son of the legendary Albert Roux, earned the honor by building an eclectic beer list at the prestigious restaurant.

Steve Wellington of the Worthington White Shield brewery in Burton-on-Trent was named brewer of the year.
