And here they are!
The winners of the 3rd Annual
3rd Wave Brewing Co. Porter/Stout Competition!
Congratulations to the Best of Show Winners.
And most importantly ---
Bravo to all the homebrewers who stepped up to the challenge.
Best of Show
1st Place Ryan Psolka, Dark Tranquility, Imperial Stout
2nd Place Thomas Ahmann, HoléMolé, Imperial Stout
3rd Place Justin Babcock, Nice Big 20B, American Sout
Remember, Ryan's recipe will be brewed with John Panasiewski at 3rd Wave and on tap later in December.
This was 3rd Wave's 1st American Homebrewers Association Sanctioned competition.
That can't happen without local dedicated BJCP judges and cicerones.
A sincere thank you from 3rd Wave and Xtreme Brewing Supplies to
the panel local judges who joined 3rd Wave Head Brewer John Panasiewski
to volunteered their evening and share the beer appreciation skills they spent years developing.
