It is the end of another great year in beer. Time to elect the 2012 Beer Advocate of the Year. This was fun last year and I would like to see it become tradition. SubpoenaDeuces has graciously turned over the reins to me this time. While there is no set criteria, the Beer Advocate of the year should exemplify generosity in the beer world, whether it happen through trading or sharing at events and tastings. They should also be insightful on a wide variety of beer related topics; a true ambassador for beer. Have a favorite trading partner, tasting buddy, friend who you only see at events but kills it every time? Love reading somebody’s reviews/posts and wish there was a way to reward them? Take the time to acknowledge everything they’ve done this year. Since this is an award for forum members the winner should have an established presence on BA. What is in it for the winner? I will tailor a box to their wants/region. Even if the winner is from my region, I’m confident I can put something together that will make them happy. Everyone gets three nominations. Person with the most nominations wins. To make this easier on me, please keep your nominations to one post. I will leave the voting open until 12:01 am Friday.
