There was a belgian strong aged in a chardonnay barrel from temecula valley brewers that was quite memorable. Also the Sierra Nevada Ovila dubble, and Kelsey's iiipa was really good.

Hey, just a heads up, while I was waiting in the massive line for the awards banquet I overhead a couple people mentioning your club's beers very positively. That English IPA I had from the hand pump was quite good!

Thanks, we had a fair number of people pass us at random times on Saturday and pay compliments too. I agree with you on bsquared's cask IPA, that thing was delicious. I really want to try my mild on that thing sometime.

Any time. We should try to set up a real ale party some time this summer. I want to try out that pin I picked from norternbrewer. Thanks for the complement shooter. I was happy that beer was ready in time.

Ooo, that would be fun! Now back to talking about NHC beers.

Best Commercial Beer - Stone's Double Black IPA (or at least I think that's what was being poured for the mayor's toast)
Best Homebrewed Beer - a Flander's Red, I believe the dude's name was Mark Emily from Seattle.
Most Overrated Beer - Janet's Brown Ale (sorry it just doesn't do anything for me and gets way too much attention).
Most Underrated Beer - all the sessionable ales (wheats, Saisons, Bitters, etc.). I was all 'hopped-out' after Pro Night.

I had too many to remember, so I'm sure I'll leave some out that I had.

thesanch's oak aged porter
Gremlyn1's mild
Saccharomyces' Serrano Coconut mead
weirdboy's IIIPA (yes, 3 I's)
humann_brewing's Imperial Stout (or porter? club night was a blur)
tedski's mead
AZ_IPA's meads
??? someone's consecration clone (speak up)
something being poured at club night from carnevoodoo (was this the pale?)
.... it gets vague after that so sorry if I left someone out.

Dang, I remember drinking lots of meads. Seems like twice a day there was a spontaneous HBT mead tasting gathering.

I forgot to mention, I was really impressed with sacc's 22 day old meads.

I would be very interested in a post detailing the process used from start to finish.
