Default My First Medal !!

My first medal (or something)

I entered 3 beers in the Minnesota State Homebrew Contest. It is a pretty big contest in MN. 330 total entries. I submitted an American Wheat, Pale Ale, and a Porter.

I got a Bronze or Honorable Mention for my Wheat out of 34 entries in that category. The detail page for my submission says Bronze, but in the listing of awards it has an "H" next to it. So I'm not sure if it was a tie for the Bronze or just Honorable Mention. Anyway..I'm pretty excited. This was my first contest entered. I see that my entries were in the three with the most submissions. 34, 39, 36 respectively. I also entered with the HomeBrewTalk club affiliation.
