2012 Beer Drinker of the Year

I know what you're thinking, FatCat should have a lock on this title.  I did finish a close second (not really) in the Beer Drinker of the Year sponsored by Wynkoop Brewing Company.  It was a close battle but in the end J. Wilson edged out a win.  The win was based largely on a gimmick in which Wilson fasted for 46 days on just water and dopplebock during lent.  I mean that's what FatCat calls summer break, I don't see how that is an accomplishment.  Wilson is a fellow beer blogger at, a homebrewer, and a beer judge.  He has also published a book about his fasting experience, Diary of a part-time Monk.  The other two finalists were Warren Manteiro and Greg Nowatzki.  For the prize Wilson wins free beer for life at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, $250 worth of beer at El Bait Shop in Des Moines, Iowa, and appropriate clothing identifying him as the 2012 Beerdrinker of the Year. 

FatCat takes this as a learning experience and will come back a stronger beer drinker next year.  This is the second time I've came away just short of a title.  Believe it or not I almost took the spot of "World's Most Interesting Man" in the Dos Equis commercials.  The other guy beat me out just because he bowls overhand, whoop-de-freakin'-doo.  I didn't want to drink Dos Equis anyhow.  And besides "The Most Interesting Man in the World" is alive only because Chuck Norris allows him to live.

Disclaimer:  I know it may come as a shock but I was not involved in any of the above mentioned competitions.
