What Bruce B said. I had a 1st, 2nd and 3rd in this comp, along with two that didn't place at all. The wins are something I am very proud of, mainly b/c the club in question has SO many top-notch brewers. And so many brewers from outside the club bring their game. I look forward to this comp each year, as it is so well run and is a real indicator of just how good (or not so good) your beers are. The score sheet feedback is usually very thorough, too.
