Shame I don't really have anything primed to go that is within style guidelines. I have 2 bottles of my nut brown that hits the numbers and is a totally solid brew but I don't think it really has enough "snap" to be a big finisher (plus I want to drink em).
I entered a pale ale into this one...it was my first entry ever, so I'm geared up to get those results in the mail.
I was actually there at Iron Hill yesterday afternoon at 4:30 for the results announcement, but they must have been running behind. I waited about 45 min and was about to head out, but their Quadfather on cask made me an offer I couldn't refuse and next thing I knew I was finishing up a dinner, dessert, and coffee and still no announcement. It was about 7:30, so I just headed home. I'm not really sure why the discrepancy in times. I heard there was over 500 entries, but last year there was over 450 or so, so I can't imagine they were that blindsided. No biggie, but I feel sorry for anybody who travelled mucho distance to get there (and the long day had by some judges).
I'm not holding out hope for my brew, I just entered for the notes...but I was/am interested in the results. Was anybody else there who stuck it out long enough to hear them?
Speaking of...I was there for lunch on Saturday 'round 1:30pm and you could tell it was going to be a long day for everyone. The hostess said they were expecting over 350 people there by dinner time. My GF gave me a hard time for not entering anything and made me promise to next year.
We had the dunkelweizen and chocolate bock. Dunkelweizen was quite tasty and my preference of the two.
