Oakshire's espresso stout was very good, very smooth and easy drinking. I've been on an IPA kick as of late so I hit the Stone IPA a couple of times.

Negative on being a member of the capital brewers, I went to one meeting and was not impressed but maybe it was just me.

ok, was just wonderin as I was thinking of checking them out. Would be nice to know more brewers from Salem/Keizer. I know they are out there, just apparently not as vocal as the ones from P-Town.

I'm in Heart of the Valley and Oregon Brew Crew, two's plenty.

Anyone else try the Mt. Angel sausages? I had a Firehouse 2 Alarm, nice heat without frying the tastebuds. I'd hoped they'd have some of their Italians, but no dice.

I went up from Grants Pass for the whole thing and picked up a first place for my Pale Ale. Someone had asked how many entries there were. They said they had 154 entries from 50+ brewers. This was my first time at one of these events, so I don't know if that's a lot or a little.

Checked with Dug Faynor today and got no dice on the winners. He said they should be posted eventually, but he was just a judge so he doesn't have access to the final results. Fired off a email to Richard to see if I can get a list from him. Hopefully I'll get a response soon.

I am a homebrewer from Salem. Would love to meet up with both you and Farmerbrewernw for a beer sometime. I have been sick and just got out of the hospital so I will not be able to do this real soon, but we should setup a time and place for in the future sometime.

I have the results, there's a link on my blog if you want them. It's a long list and I don't know your guy's names so I can't just tell you your places. http://www.theweeklybrew.com/2009/04/and-the-winner-of-the-homebrewers-classic-is/

Well I went springer fishing instead of the brew fest. Spring salmon is now closed for fishing which sucks but I had to give it one last shot! Did anyone here actually go to the fest? I may make a weekend of it next year if there are good reviews.

thanks
