I Done Won… Something!

with 2 comments

I’m shocked. Just stunned. It turns out that I’ve won some sort of award from CAMRA for, uh, something. You see, I got this in my inbox just the other day:

Good day Chuck!

It is our pleasure to let you know that the CAMRA Vancouver membership has spoken and picked you as a winner in the 2012 CAMRA Vancouver Beer Awards.

Award(s) will be handed out at the AGM on Sunday, Jan 22nd. We kindly invite you to send a representative from your company to accept the award(s).

Note that the message says absolutely nothing about what, exactly, I won. Heck, I don’t even know that I truly won anything, since they give out prizes for the top three. And “Second” is just another word for “First Loser.”

I could be getting the nod in pretty much any category here, beit “Best Blogger”, “Best Beard”, or perhaps “Guy We’d Most Like To Meet In Person So We Can Give Him A Bomb Designed As An Award.” Sadly, all are equally likely. Although somehow I doubt I got third in Best Beard. I mean, c’mon! Have you seen Fluffy?

In any event, I won’t be there. I have a Driftwood Brewery tour to conduct at that exact same time. Instead, I will be sending along my lovely, and almost certainly insane, assistant Jenn to pick up the plaque for me (Note to Jenn: Please don’t pawn it before I get back). Please be nice to her, and remember that I’m not legally bound to honour any predictions, pacts or promissory notes she issues on my behalf.

First, why are there so many beer trophies on the internet? Second, why are they all made out of terrible beer?

  1. Congratulations on the award!

    Have fun at Driftwood. Get lots of pictures and a scoop on what they have in store after Singularity!

  2. That’s the plan. Hard to say how much Jason will willingly say, since he’ll be fully aware it will immediately be made public, but I think there’s a few tidbits up for grabs.
