In my state (Washington), a few folks have started the first "Washington Only" beer awards. WE entered our flagship American Amber. It's the same recipe that I won 1st place (category, not BOS) with in a few local and regional comps.
The judging was last month, and the awards will be handed out this coming Saturday.
I must say, I am going crazy waiting. To think our little brewery's beer is in the same flight as those from Elysian, Fremont, Red Hook, Hales, Pyramid, and many others is both intimidating and exciting at the same time. I guess I'm just hoping the Amber category wasn't well entered. LOL.
