I can't believe how fast they got the winners up! Great organization. I didn't place in either of my porter categories (I knew my berliner failed to carbonate so I didn't expect anything with that one). I'm interested to see how the scoresheets look.

This was my first competition and I entered two beers. My specialty stout did well, unfortunately my IPA bottle was oxidized. I did find the score sheets for both beers had useful comments.

I agree they got the results up super quick. I saw the results sheet but haven't seen my score sheet. Did they post them online or were you all at the actual event?

I was at the event. They started handing out score sheets a little after best of show.

Right on, hope your beer scored well, did they mention if they were going to make the scoresheets available online or mail them to those who were out of town and unable to attend?

The stout I entered in the specialty beer category did well. It was a maple rye stout, but the maple doesn't really come through. I think it would have done better if I just entered it as a rye stout. The other beer had been oxidized so it didn't fare too well. They didn't say anything about score sheets that weren't picked up, but the envelope they handed me had my address on it, so it is safe to assume they will mail them out.

Great comp. The organization was brilliant. Getting through that amount of beers and all the results so fast was a top effort.

I took first place for my common cider. My IPA scored pretty well too. I picked up my score sheets after the awards. Got some great feedback. I'm pretty sure they mail the rest out.
