From Dan Norton of Nortons Brewing Company: "In the 18 years I've been professionally brewing, I've always brewed a beer in honor of each of my 3 kids. They get to name their beer, and tell me what they want it to taste like. My oldest child came up with Don't Poke the Bear, a chocolate imperial milk stout with vanilla."

Lov-a-ly Bunch of Coconuts

Nate Levengood has been brewing beer at home for the better part of the last decade and was excited when he got to team up with Millersburg Brewing Company (Ohio) to brew this Sweet Cream Stout with toasted coconuts.

There were 91 beers judged in the 2016 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Pro-Am Competition, each having humble beginnings in a kitchen, garage, or back patio. Each beer is an award winner before it even arrives to Denver, having already medaled at a Beer Judge Certification Program/AHA-sanctioned competition and been chosen by a professional brewer for the GABF competition.

Only three of the 91 are dubbed GABF medal winners, but the other 88 are excellent as well. We talked to a few of the non-medal winners about their experiences with the GABF Pro-Am competition and garnered a few recipes in the process. Here is one of them. Enjoy.

Yak & Yeti’s Chai Milk Stout Clone

Homebrewers Association

This homebrew version of Yak and Yeti's Chai Milk Stout comes from the May/June 2013 issue of Zymurgy magazine. This recipe also won silver for Herb and Spice Beer at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival.

Brewer Chris Kennedy says, "The milk stout base is very milky and chocolatey, and you want to let those characteristics shine through just as strongly as the chai spice. I like to drink the chai stout and not be entirely sure whether the flavors are coming from the chai spices or the milk stout base."

Editor's note: The brewery is now called Spice Trade Brewing and is a stand alone brewery brewing out of Yak & Yeti restaurant in Arvada, CO.
