THIS YEAR'S JUDGES-2020

You’d think I’d be tired of shouting from the rooftops about our judges after 8 years of the Alberta Beverage Awards – but you’d be wrong. We couldn’t do any of this without our judges, with their well-honed palates, years of experience sipping, swirling, and waxing poetic about their chosen beverage(s). Selected from among Alberta’s finest restaurants, retail stores, and beverage influencers, I’m proud to share this year’s judges below.
