A break down of the numbers:
Thanks for the blog link, Brian. It looks like the prediction panned out again this year for Gordon Strong, but this is a good look at the NHC First Round numbers. FYI, CA has so many qualifiers because there are two regions in CA, the Southwest Region and the West Region; in addition to there being so many good brewers in the very big state of CA.
Congratulations to DOZE for winning the Homebrew Club of the Year award!
