Default Sweet Suprise!

OK, A few weeks ago, a small brew pup in Wilmington NC (Front Street Brewery) hosted a Homebrew competition. It is their plan to take the "best in show" winner's recipe and brew it at their establishment. They will then set aside 3-4 kegs to enter in the GABF Pro-am competition with the winner. So I took a chance, and entered my IPA (which is Dude's Lake Walk with a kick in the hops) and my Chocolate RIS. I have never entered a contest and thought it would be good to get the feedback.

Well.....I won gold in both groups and best in show.

I am so stoked to get to brew my RIS on their system that I think I am going to blow a gasket.... The best part is the entry into the Pro-am.

BUT to the real point. When they release it on tap at the pub, I want to have as many people as are willing to make the trip, to come, and have a blow out party. I know there are many NC and VA brewers who could come check it out. We are brewing it on or around June 13th, so it should be ready sometime near the end of July, and I will be posting an update.

PS...I'm not bragging, as I am totally suprised to be honored like this. I am really humbled that they like them so much.

Congratulations! That's awesome, dude!
If I was a bit closer, I'd love to be in on the party!

Front Street's a great brewpub. When I lived in NC, I'd drive down to Wilmington a couple times a year, and always had to hit Front Street. I'll be down there during my NC trip next week, so too early, but congratulations nonetheless!

You know what's really sad, I work a few blocks up the street from Front St. Brew and I haven't been in there once since I started homebrewing. Of course it's not exactly easy for me to go in and have a pint or two on the clock, and since I drive 10 miles home after work, it's probably not a great idea to have a few before headin' home either.

I'll have to get the in-laws to take the kids for an afternoon soon and have a nice lunch in there with the wife. They do make a pretty good burger or two in there.

Congrats!!!

I did exactly the same...won Best of Style and Best of Show my first time out and brewed 250 gals at the brewpub for sale at the pub.

I invited a lot of people I knew. They said it was the second fastest brew ever to be sold out.

Still, my congrats to you!!
