Now I'm going to watch The Sunshine Challenge awards ceremony live on streaming video.

Did you see blatz picking up 2 golds and 3 bronze medals?  Wow!


I did see. Just goes to show ya - Blatz can make a good beer! ;)

That was the most subdued Sunshine Challenge awards ceremony I've ever seen.  Was everybody hungover?

We were still working on getting to that point, as I think I may recall.  I started judging at 9am and did 3 first round flights, then went on the pub crawl.  By the time you tuned in it had been a full day.

thanks guys! 5 outta 6 ain't bad - specially when I expected exactly zero   :D

as far as the Ceremony - yeah, similar to Jeffy - I judged 5 flights beginning at 9am (after judging 4 the night before, prior to the beer festival) before going to the pub crawl (which involved $3 pints of fresh Celebration  :) ) so by the time the ceremony rolled around, I was done. 

The important part is that Jeffy gave me the correct score on my IPA  ;D
