British beer writer of the year Pete Brown is giving away the trip to Ceske Budejovice, where Budvar is brewed, he won last month. He’s been twice and figures the trip would not give him as much value as it could someone else.
Working in conjunction with Budvar UK and The Publican, we’re launching a mini-competition to encourage new beer writing talent.
This is open to anyone who is passionate about beer, wants to write about it, but has not yet had anything published in print media. We can’t and don’t want to exclude bloggers because most people who are keen to write about beer have started doing so electronically, but we want to offer someone the chance to break into being published offline for the first time.
It’s simple. You need to write a thousand-word piece on the subject of ‘Why Beer Matters’, interpreted in whatever way you see fit. You need to send this to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 29th January, remembering to include your real name, postal address and contact telephone number.
“5. Beer Is Not the New Wine: But wine might just be the new beer!”
Think about it, he writes. Please do.
