Posts about brewing competitions that I've participated in, or related posts about beers I intend to enter in competition.

The Results are In!

My brewing buddy Ken and I decided that we'd throw caution to the wind and submit a few of our beers to the biggest homebrew competition in the United States, the National Homebrew Competition, hosted by the American Homebrewer's Association. The competition starts with regional, first round competitions of up to 650 entries per judging center, then the winners from each category of those rounds move on to the final round, which is being held in San Diego, CA on June 6th.

I decided to enter my Cacao Idaeus, Fall Down Brown, and Dark Matter Doppelbock this year, even though none of them turned out the way I wanted them to. I thought it would be interesting to get professional feedback, and that it would be awesome to get some accolades for what my friends call, great beer (and I think so too).
