Just started brewing last spring, entered my first competition. St Cloud, MN march mashness with my hefeweizen. I just got word from a fellow duluth brew club member that I took the bronze medal in my category. Very excited and wanted to share and a general thanks goes out for all the great things i have learned from here so far.

Thanks
Mike in Duluth.

congrats dude!

I was up there last night for the awards ceremony. It was a lot of fun and you should plan on going next year. There were a lot of prizes and door prizes and lots of fun people to chat with. Dustin Brau of Brau Brothers Brewing spoke and took questions for about an hour which was informative and fun.

Good job with the hefe, my friend took the gold in that category with his first competition beer and I got the gold for the lager category with a schwarzbier.

Josh, I was actually happy and excited for you on your wins. You were runner up best of show. Some people just can't let things go though... It's too bad.

Eh, no worries Matt. I stumbled across your rant after searching for March Mashness results and it gave me a healthy chuckle.

Yeah, they didn't post it on the results as far as I could see, but it did come up at the banquet that the Berliner Weisse was runner up best of show. Good job dude. I checked out your twitter feed to see if you had heard and saw what I saw.


I buried that hatchet a long time ago, and I hope you would do the same.
