Phil Farrel Wins 2011 Beerdrinker Of The Year

When I saw Phil Farrel during SF Beer Week I congratulated him for being nominated once again for Beer Drinker of the Year and told him I thought “it was his year.” It turns out I was right, as earlier today he emerged as the 2011 Beer Drinker of the Year.

From the press release:

In his fourth trip to the Beerdrinker of the Year finals, Cumming, GA commercial pilot Phil Farrell landed the 2011 Beerdrinker of the Year title.

More John Elway than Jim Kelly, Farrell finally won his dream title today in a 2-hour finals event held before a standing-room-only crowd at Denver, Colorado’s Wynkoop Brewing Company.

Congratulations Phil.

    Thanks for all the support and encouragement over the years. Your blog kept me from missing important things in the Beer World. As much as we would all like, you can’t be everywhere. Send me an email where I can send you a link and some pictures.

    It took 39 yrs of service at Delta Airlines to have my Picture taken in an airplane cockpit.
    Thank you for the fun experience you made my day
