WA breweries came away with a combined 7 medals. This includes 3 for Pyramid who also took Mid-Size Brewing Co. of the year. (Some of these beers could very well have been brewed at their facilities in Oregon or California)

Kudos to Big Time Brewer Bill Jenkins and AHA member Jeff Niggemeyer who took gold in the Pro-Am Competition!

I'm excited about Barley Bros. getting a bronze for their double espresso stout. Really good beer and super nice guys.

Oh well.
Their beers were great. My wife and I tried all of them (that only happened at a handful of other tables). I was ignorant that a southern brewery could do such wonderful things with barley, yeast, hops and water. I am glad I was informed that one could.

My take on the winner's list is that if it fits the category perfectly enough to win, then the beer becomes less interesting. For me it's always about the things that push the beer out of category that make me want to have another pint. The obvious exception is the Experimental beer category. Cambridge Brewing Company had me back for seconds (one of only three beers to do so this year).

Old Milwaukee Light? What a joke!

'American Moldy Bread Style Light Lager'

On a lighter note, Oregon represented with 19 medals.

Hooray for my local winners and other great beers I got to try:

I was going to list all the Colorado beers that won medals, but stopped after counting up 29(!) of them. I need to keep this list in my car for my next visit to Tipsy's Liquor.

Also, hooray for the judges -- that much tasting has to be a chore, and must really burn out the palate.
