Default IPA placed at the County Fair!!

My IPA (my third batch ever) placed 2nd at the Lane County Fair in Eugene, OR! I'm pretty pumped. I didn't think I would place either of my beers and was just looking for some comments from the BJCP judges. Of course, for all I know there could have only been two IPA entries!

My porter got an "honorable mention" because it was placed in the wrong category. It was dry-hopped with coffee but was misplaced into the Robust Porter category instead of the Specialty category. I was a little bit bummed because the remarks show it was well-received but clearly miscategorized. Oh well, I guess I'll be more clear with my labelling next time.

Just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.

Greenspey

Congrats Greenspey,

I tasted your porter, but wasn't on the judging panel. It was a very good porter, but like you said it was misplaced, and unfortunately we have to judge them as they are catagorized. Which actually happens quite a bit.

I didn't judge the IPAs either, but from what I remember, there were about 10-12, or so.

10-12. This makes me realize how truly insane the San Diego County fair is. I think there were about 60 IPAs this year. Totally out of control.

Yes, i bet it is. The Lane Co. Fair is typically pretty small in the total numbers. Last year there were maybe 20-25 entries total. This year we had a whopping 53 entries.

haha. That's awesome! My stout was among 55 stouts at the fair this year!

Regardless, congrats on winning!

In the heart of hop country? I doubt it.

You probably beat out some worthy competitors.

Congrats.

Thanks for the quick replies, everyone.

Natas, it's cool to see you on here, too, and thanks for the info.

I really appreciated all the judges remarks. That's why I entered. So, thanks for taking the time to judge at the Fair! I wish I could have sampled all the brews there. That would be pretty sweet.

Time to try some more styles!!
