This week we chat with Mike Bennie, a drinks writer and one of the founders of the Drink Easy Awards.
The Drink Easy Awards promises beers will be judged, not against style, but in an egalitarian system aimed at elevating collections of drinks that represent not only the notion of high quality but the development and creativity found within their community. The awards have the support of idiosyncratic brewers such as Wildflower’s Topher Boehm who sparked our interest saying that they are not just another drinks awards. He said the awards were born out of frustration of style based competitions where more creative drinks can sometimes miss out. Hope you enjoy Matt’s chat with Mike Bennie.
