Our Nelson Sauvin Pale Ale took first place yesterday in the American Ale category at the 2013 Chicago Winter Brew Competition. I put it in the HBT recipe database here:

Damn! Well played, Pappers! Out of curiosity, what do you do with your medals? I always wonder about that when I hear this sort of good news!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

There was a ribbon and in the past I've put the ribbon, a nice photo-quality copy of the label, and a brief sign into a 3-D photo box, if you know what I mean. Its a photo frame, but it has depth. When/if I do that with this, I'll put up a photo of it.

I like that--tasteful yet honors the achievement. I only have 2 so far, but hope to add more, and this seems like a classy display option. Thank you!

And congratulations again

Finally got around to putting the shadow box together



As you can see, the ribbon is a little underwhelming - not unlike the 'participation' ribbon they hand out for grammar school sports The label is printed out on glossy photo paper and is printed using high quality photo printing settings.
