Well, for those of you that haven't heard, Carnes made it in the competition (as he should have with a 45). Laughing There will be 11 brewers in the contest this time, 4 of which belong to this group. That is pretty good!

Bill and Shwobee, you both had good beers. I don't always understand the comments of the judges. Brenden made it sound like Shwobee's beer could be great on popcorn and roasting ears, and Jim hinted around that Bill's beer tastes like cough syrup or as the main ingredient in Runzas. This couldn't be farther from the truth. Don't take it personally. As a matter of fact, you will both find that your beer is superior to mine. I am willing to say that the same beer can differ by 15 points based on which judge gets hold of it. Well, at least you both have some delicious beer on tap, be it 10 gallons. Maybe we should throw a little party or something. I hope you both bring your beers to the after party for some redemption and to ensure we get something good to drink.

Just a reminder, the national homebrew deadlines are creeping up on us. I think the submissions need to be in by March 25th. I personally think that Carnes has had a few beers that would do well, maybe the Brochefort, Jim's wheat wine and perhaps the Billsner. Let's get some trophies for the brewman case.

I think I am going to bottle a few beers from the irish swill and send it in for the national homebrew competition and see how it does.....

Congrats

Post  Harker on Mon Feb 23, 2009 11:34 am

A big congratulations to the Scribe for winning the public competition at beer quest. His beer was awesome and he deserved to win. Additionally, the brew man group represented well as a whole. Out of the 4 competitors, we took 1st (Scribe), 3rd (Harker), 4th (Librarian) and 5th place (Porter).

Scribe will be brewing his beer this Friday at Lazlos and he encourages all of his fellow brewmen to come down for a while. I have fears that Rich will not be able to replicate the beer due to the "souring" process. Fruit flies are a problem.

The big question here is this:

Will the Lagers' upcoming newsletter mention how Mark Beatty WON (...the brewers choice round)? AND will they or will they not mention that the title was shared?

Seriously though guys, I had a great time yesterday hanging out and drinking... your supportiveness really means alot! I couldn't have done it without the marketing skills of Schweit (new nickname: "Schweit Power"). BROS before BREWS!!

To kill a Mocking Bird

Post  Harker on Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:49 am

His mocking comments still leave a sour taste in my mouth, and I'm not talking about the taste from his beer quest entries. I've always got a long with him in the past, but when he started mocking my comments and snubbing his nose to my beers, I take it personally.

If you don't know the story, I simply asked a fellow brewer if his beer was exposed to light because it had a slight "skunky" taste to it. An observation that other people made as well. It was still a very good beer btw.

One more thing

Post  Harker on Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:59 am

Without mentioning names, a different brewer was nice enough to speak with me after my first win at beer quest. The first words he chose was "you know, the public don't know what the fuck they are doing". That's just great, can you believe someone would say that? Oh well, maybe I'm being petty.

It's OK Harker, it just means that you take A LOT of pride in your beer and beer observational ability. It's hard to let something go when someone is intentionally snubbing your beer and brewing/tasting skills, especially when you are as serious as fellow brewmen.

Don't let it bring you down.
