Here is the rundown:
I placed 2 firsts and a second, and BOS with B's Honey Wheat.
How, I will never know, but they did well. The best beer there IMHO was a porter (we think) that was entered in the ESB category. The judges gave it a 23 for the style but it would have been close to a 40 in the right category, they said. Another great one (far better than mine too) was an American Amber that was hopped up the yazoo but stinking awesome. I think it got deducted for too many hops, but that beer was killer.
The other first was my Pub Ale (I had the highest expectations for this one) and the second was my Honey Pale Ale in the specialty category. The same beer in the pale ale category did not advance.
Cleaned up with some nice brewing ingredients (15 lbs. of grain, yeast coupons), and some other stuff.
The best part of the day was meeting all kinds of great people. Even one from this forum (Grimace?)! The James River HB club really did a fine job with organizing something this big--and even though it was a long day, it was a blast. Yeah, especially for me.
