You’re looking at the tankard for runner-up! #BGBW


A quick update to my rapidly posted photo from the Awards Dinner.

I’m chuffed, to say the least. I’m still feeling quite shell-shocked, but it’s official, the engraving on the tankard still reads:

The British Guild of Beer Writers
Brains SA Gold
Best Online Communication
Runner up 2010
Jerry Bartlett

Mark Dredge was the winner in this category and he is well worth it, because he is a very engaging writer, always has interesting topics, and uses social media very skillfully.
See Mark’s Pencil and Spoon blog.

I feel like I really ought to come up with a post today to justify my award, but it will have to wait. If you would like to read the entries I submitted for the competition, they start with Fullers Brewery Trip: A Blogger’s Tale, and end with the Carlsberg’s Dastardly Plot exposed post.

I’m off out to celebrate at the White Horse Old Ales Festival. Last night I had an Ardbeg Supernova 2010 when I got in, and then about 4 hours sleep. Time now to celebrate with a beer.
