Default First competition and first medal!

Yesterday was the judging of the 4th Annual Temecula Homebrewers competition. This was the first competition I've ever entered and I entered a American Pale Ale and Fruit Beer. While our American Pale Ale didn't place our Fruit Beer came in third! I'm pretty damn pleased overall and can't wait to see the score cards. Really interested in how I can improve on our brewing practices.

Very nice. What kind of fruit beer did you make? I'm planning to try and make one I'm a few weeks. Torn between peaches or strawberries.
