The AHA Club-Only Competition for Specialty Beer was hosted by the Brewers United Zany Zymurgists (BUZZ) club of West Chester, PA on Saturday, October 29, 2011.
Forty-nine (49) entries were received from twenty-six (26) states.
First Place: Matt Sager of Walnut Creek, CA representing Diablo Order of Zymiracle Enthusiasts (DOZE) with a
Specialty (23a) beer named "Oatmeal Raisin Cookie." This truly was like drinking a rich, liquid oatmeal cookie.
Second Place: Victor Macias of Los Angeles, CA representing Pacific Gravity Home Brewers Club with a Specialty (23a) beer named "Millefolia Gruit." What a well balanced combination of herbs and malt.
Third Place: Bob Love of St. Charles, MO representing Garage Brewers Society with a Specialty (23a) beer named "Rasmanian Devil." Jalapeño, raspberries and malt all came together so well.
Congratulations to all brewers and clubs.
