Howell wins honors

KPC Student Services Director and Adjunct Faculty member, Bill Howell, was crowned 2010 Beerdrinker of the Year. According to Marty Jones, a representative at Wynkoop Brewing Company in Denver, CO, "2010 Beerdrinker of the Year, Bill Howell, faced tough competition from Logan Perkins and Phil Farrell, two of the nation's most ambitious beer hunters. But, Bill used his knowledge of beer, sense of humor and beer-outreach efforts to win the title. His answers on the technical questions of beer and beer styles were very good and his everyman personality and wit also served him well. Among the many questions Bill answered was 'Can you see Russia from your local brewery?' ('No' was his answer.)" Howell won free beer for life at the Wynkoop; a $250 bar tab at his favorite brewpub, St. Elias Brewing Company; and Beerdrinker of the Year attire. The other finalists were Phil Farrell, a Georgia commercial pilot, and Logan Perkins, a Denver beer enthusiast.
