I just learned today that two of Mac’s four entries into the Orange County Fair hombrew competition have won awards. Last night I received an e-mail invitation (from the competition organizers) to attend the Orange County Fair Homemade Beer Party. The e-mail didn’t say I won anything, but there was one sentence at the end stating, “The competition party is open to winners, judges and stewards.” Today I found the results posted on the OC Fair website. So here is how my two winners fared at the fair:
Little Levi’s Bourbon Barrel Stout – 2nd place in the Wood-Aged Beer class
Mac’s Black Forest Stout – 3rd place in the Fruit Beer class
Mac’s Aeronautical Amber Ale and Mak’s Bavarian Hefeweizen did not place in the competition, but I’m not disappointed, as two of my four entries won awards. I’m proud of this accomplishment, and this may just motivate me to brew again . . . . . . .
Here is a link to the OC Fair Homemade Beer Competition Results:
The winners are listed in alphabetical order (6 pages – that’s a lot of beer; would that be fun to be a judge, or what!!). I may just have to have a celebration party, serve some of my award winning brew and gloat! Well, maybe I won’t gloat, but if I do, remember Mac’s motto says it all, “I’ve Upped My Standards . . . UP YOURS!”
