Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience!
Do you know how many competition medals and BOS awards you have won over the years?
What do you do with all those medals, are they on display or are they tucked away in a rather large box somewhere?
Medals? No idea. BOSs? 18. Haven't really entered anything since NHC 2010, though.
Medals and ribbons are in a variety of bags in storage. Nicer awards (plaques) are on a wall. The Ninkasis are on the wall. Some of the nicer trophies that are glassware or an actual award are on shelves. The Utopias bottles are on a shelf too. My wife let me use our great room for all this stuff. It has some favorite framed beer posters, like a Belgian Beer poster and a Stille Nacht poster I got at the brewery, also a sweet Anchor Brewing mirror that I won at the 2007 NHC. That room has a pool table, various bookcases with beer books, a fireplace, a bar, a stereo, etc. Kind of the home pub without the pub. All the beer is in the walkin, which is through the adjacent garage door. Basically, it's the stuff I'd have in my basement if I had a basement.
I'm not allowed to bring home new glassware, t-shirts, or hats. Special stuff I have to sneak in ;-)
