T.A.P Awards 2011
The 2011 Miller Coors 2nd Annual T.A.P Awards held in Atlanta, GA celebrated the individuals and brands who made a difference in 2011, through their tireless efforts in raising the bar in customer service and innovating aspects. Hosted by V-103 radio personality Ramona Debreaux and Beer Connoisseur Magazine Dennis Byron the event leaked with over 400 Industry Professionals that didn’t mind Miller Coors picking up the tab. Out of this group emerged Verse Simmonds, who had boths hands full with a brew in one hand and his first T.A.P Award for ‘Sound of the City’. Verse Simmonds gave his thanks and then he told the ladies that he would Buy Them A Round, but Miller Coors Rep Steve Canal lets him know that Miller Coors is picking up the tab. Mrs. Terri J. Vaughn passed on drinking beer, but elegantly took home her award for “Premium Infuencer of the Year”, and told everyone to look out for her new movie “A Cross to Bear” in February 2012.
The beneficiary award went to the Atlanta Urban League of Young Professionals who throughout the year have made strides with different charitable events. ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Chef Jason Ellis was awarded Business Visionary of the Year, his grind this year has Chef Ellis as The Chef for Atlanta’s Elite and rightfully so, he even took the liberty during the T.A.P Awards to put on a cooking display using Miller Coors products, with a southern favorite ‘Shrimp and Grits’. The T.A.P Awards was created on the premise of bringing the MillerCoors portfolio of beers, America knows and loves, to life. (Berry Weiss, Blue Moon, Coors Light, Miller Light and Peroni Italy) Incorporating a formal awards presentation honoring the brand’s top tier account holders, premium influencers, and Sound of the City award recipients, the event serves as a platform highlighting mixologist, bartenders, bar staff and influencers.
