“Earn Your Beer” Wins 2020 Gold Award in SATW’s Column Category
The judges, faculty members at the University of Missouri, commented the following about the Earn Your Beer columns:
“Okay, so the premise is a little off-kilter – teaming up exhausting adventure sports with craft beer. These well-written columns are fast-paced, fun and really will get you off and exploring natural areas, with a cold brew as your reward.”
Said Murren on receiving the award: “I am both surprised and deeply honored. The idea that writing about outdoor adventuring and independent craft brewing, that it comes together and is recognized by experts in the field of journalism, and my peers, goes beyond anything I imagined when I started this gig. I am especially grateful to Matt Niswonger and the Adventure Sports Journal editorial team for taking a chance on my writing.”
“We are thrilled with this award and thankful to James for his passion and hard work with the Earn Your Beer columns. He really took the concept and ran with it. This award serves as validation that people can relate to the challenge of earning their beer. Thanks James and thank you SATW for recognizing this column,” said ASJ editor Matt Niswonger.
