Boy did I pick the right brewpub to start waiting tables at two years ago.

I've been the Assistant brewer since last July, and it's easily the best job I've had. Besides the fact that I can actually say I am a professional brewer, I'm one of two employees in the brewery that are making some of the best beers in the world.

Sharptail Pale Ale got silver for American Style Pale Ale

Stillwater Rye got bronze in Herb and Spice Beer

Sandbagger Gold got bronze in English style Summer Ale

I think if only one of those was a gold, we would have continued to be best Small Brewpub that we got at GABF last year. The brewery that won got two golds. I guess to golds wins more points than 2 bronze and a silver.

I think it's time to pour me a home brewed Sharptail (this last batch came pretty freakin' close) and start today's brewing session.

Thanks. I'm very proud for Travis. I wish I could say I had some creative control, but that's all in his boat. He asks my opinion on things when we're tasting beer, but really I'm just trying to soak up as much knowledge as I can before I inevitably move on to an airline job (gotta put the expensive degree to work).

My jobs in the brewery are the less glorious ones; shovel the mash tun, clean ferementors, mill the grain, ...



Here's the full list of winners

Category 35: American-Style Specialty Lager, 28 entries
Gold: Steel Reserve, Miller Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI
Silver: Busch Ice, Anheuser-Busch Inc., St. Louis, MO
Bronze: Mickey's Ice, Miller Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI

these always amaze me. isn't there somebody that can make a better "specialty lager"?

Congrats!

Does your brewer not let you brew at all?

Wow, that's awesome. Yeah, learn all that you can - you'll have a helluva resume to show off when you're ready to move on and become a head brewer someplace yourself.
