Please note that I have just become aware that FedEx no longer delivers to Fox which is the location of the competition.

Entries shipped via FedEx will end up sitting in a warehouse near the airport in Fairbanks.

Such entries will not be received and, therefore, will not be entered into the competition.

Please do NOT ship your entries via FedEx!

Please join me in congratulating Mike Cragen of Anchorage, Alaska for winning Best of Show in this year's competition!

The winning beer was a wonderfully malty Munich Helles.
