Just checked the mail and to my total shock there was an envelope from the AHA. My 2008 NHC score was only 31 for my APA and they had indicated that it hadn't placed, well it didn't go to second round but silver in the first round is awsome as far as i'm concerned. This was a great surprise since my score sheets that came around the first week of may said nothing about actually getting any kind of award.

My understanding was that if it won a medal and scored above 30 than it went on to the second round.
I'd check the rules again just to be sure.

And congrats.

Well that would be cool but its to late for me to send beer at this point anyway, because there aint none left of that batch, and they never sent me any notice of advancement. I'm not sure if this is a medal really, it's just a paper cetificate but it's cool as heck.

That is cool! I got a 37 on my American amber, but it didn't place. It was the second highest score, though (37.5 was the score on the first place beer), so I didn't feel too bad!

Today, I received 3 certificates. My Apfelwein got a silver and my APA and Robust Porter both each got a Bronze certificate.

I got a gold cert for my belgian pale ale (41/50) just yesterday as well... and I wasn't aware/didn't think I advanced b/c I wasn't listed on the Top 3 in my region for belgians? No 16Bs were I don't think...

Ah well, this will be neat to hold on to/show off...

EDIT: heck, maybe I'll post a pic...
EDIT2: for those interested in seeing what we are speaking of (and a shameless bragging pic since this was my first comp ever)

That's awsome guys I was really excited to see mine and It's cool knowing that a whole bunch of brewers are getting these nice little surprises. I know mine is going to look great in the brewhaus.
