The Belgian Golden takes the gold!

This is so cool! I entered all 5 beers in the Vanbrewers 2012 Home Brewing competition and the Belgian Golden Strong won 1st place for category 18. If you’ve never entered a competition here are the BCJP style guidelines. The others, however didn’t place, so for those you’ll just have to take my word for it, they were really good, honest. I am looking forward to seeing the judges comments which will be mailed to me soon. I’ll post them here too. That’s the really great thing about entering a competition, you get the scoresheets even if you didn’t win. The scoresheets from last years competition were spot on. The judges pointed out all the corners I had been cutting. It was a rather humbling experience even though I did get two silver medals. Vanbrewers is a home brewing club here in Vancouver with I believe around 70 members. They’ve organized this competition for the past three years which is open to anybody. This year there were 262 entries. So to get a gold medal is pretty awesome, thanks Vanbrewers!
