My First Homebrew Competition
« on: January 29, 2012, 02:42:45 PM »
Entered my Pale Ale (my 5th brew) in LHBS brew competition.  It wasn't a sanctioned event and the category I entered was the Yellow category, which included Pilsners, Pale Ales, Steams, etc...  There was a total of about 60 beers in my category and I finished 3rd!  I was shocked when they announced my name.  Talking w/ other contestants and their techniques, equipment, etc..., well, I felt a little overwhelmed and just didn't want to finish last.  Just goes to show it doesn't have to be fancy to be good!  Now, let's see if I can replicate it!

Great job. Way to go.  I'm sure you'll be getting firsts soon enough.

Congratulations!
In a humble log cabin off an unregarded back road, somewhere, deep in the heart of Pennsylvania’s hill country, we find our intrepid hero — the Brush Valley Brewer.
