I just saw this posted over at The Aleuminati. The Wynkoop 2008 Beer Drinker of the Year award this year goes to Matt Venzke of Yorktown, VA. This is the second year in a row that the winner has come from Virginia. Last year's winner was Diane Catanzaro of Norfolk, VA. The 2005 winner was Tom Ciccateri of Alexandria, VA. Nothing yet posted at the Wynkoop web site.
I'll update this post as more info becomes available. Meanwhile you can see Matt's Aleumenati profile here.
Update, Feb. 26: Jay Brooks has a press release and photo at the Brookston Beer Bulletin.
