this will be my first competition as well. i'm dropping my beers off on Thursday. i'm entering a blonde ale as well plus an IPA, old ale and foreign extra stout. like you, i'm interested in some objective feedback from judges that aren't friends.

Good luck! I'm participating in my first competition too next month: Amateur Homebrew Competition at the Montgomery County Fair.

results are in: http://data.desmoinesregister.com/dmr/iowa-statefair/statefair_results.php?BRSR=0&keyCOLUMN_SORT=%27Iow a%20Family%20Living:%20Oenology&keyCOMPETITOR=%27& keyYEAR=%27&keyKEYWORD=%27

i placed 1st in the 'stout' category and none of the rest placed, but hey, one 1st in four beers is fine with me! pretty jazzed about it. my brewing buddy travis got 3rd with his American IPA too, the only beer he entered.

So they judged the beer already, I thought they did that during the fair. Or is the fair just time to show off the winners?
