So this turned out to be one of the better Great American Beer Festivals for me personally. I won 1st place in the Beer & Food category in the 2015 North American Guild of Beer Writers (NAGBW) awards for my article, “Feeding Frenzy,” in All About Beer Magazine. It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized, especially in the company of so many highly accomplished fellow winners. I don’t usually win stuff, so this pretty much made my year.
Read the article that won here.
