The Country Squire podcast hosted by Jon David Cole and Beau York named Briar Report’s News web site the best pipe publication of the year for 2019.
Citing its easy to navigate format and its exhaustive curating skills. Taking stories from around the world and aggregating them for pipe enthusiasts and cigar smokers each day.
During the awards ceremony Beau commented that “it’s been a great resource for the pipe community this year.” That pretty much sums up the reason Briar Report was nominated and ultimately won. Beating out some of the giants in the industry.
The site also has an extensive list of retailers, pipe restorers, pipe clubs, podcasters and YouTube channels. As Jon David says “a center stage for all things pipe related”.
We couldn’t be more proud to win this distinction from The Country Squire. We also know that the only reason we have become so popular is because of the people who check in with us each day to see the latest news and information. Our loyal readers are our biggest asset and get our deepest appreciation.
Thank you Jon David and Beau for presenting us with this major award.
