Spotted Cow won the Umali Award for Most Consumed Beer for the 5th straight year. Here, with subtitles, is Jennifer Geigel reading the acceptance speech sent in by New Glarus Brewery brew master Dan Carey.
This is the first year we read "beer poems" at the Umali Awards. Each beer nominated for "Most Consumed Beer" was ostensibly the subject of each poem. Here, author Chuck Stebelton of the Woodland Pattern Book Center (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) reads and Nicholas Frank, at the time curator of the Inova/Kenilworth Gallery (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) hosted. The event took place on June 26, 2009 in the Green Gallery West. Joe Riepenhoff operated the camera.
