Self-congratulation thread
« on: July 15, 2007, 12:15:25 PM »
Since there's nobody else here to do it:  I brought home 3 ribbons from the Indiana State Fair Brewers Cup yesterday!

1st place Stout with a Dry Stout
1st place IPA with an AIPA
3rd place Scottish/Irish with an Irish Red

Over 400 homebrew entries in the competition.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go ice down my shoulder.  Must have sprained it somehow...

Nice work.  Too bad more of us don't know how good your homebrews are...

:bag:

I sent a couple out last year as bonus bottles in BOMC2, but I bottle mostly in EZ-cap swing-tops, so I don't ship them out much.  I only do a half-dozen or so from each batch in longnecks for competitions.

I'll see about bringing a few up to Madison for GTMW.  I'm sure we'll meet up at some point over the weekend.

Nice job dude... I was going to shoot my IIPA to that competition, but will be getting it in the Michigan one for sure..

If you want to ship me some to enter, I can drop them off for you.

How does one go about entering this contests?

For Michigan, I found this link with details, including this one:

Quote
1. Who is eligible to enter?
Any Michigan made, non-commercial, home produced beer, cider or mead is eligible.
Entries may not be submitted in the name of another person. An entrant is defined as
the one or more people submitting an entry that had an active role in brewing the entry.
An entrant may not be an entire brew club.

That leaves us both out, unless we want to let OC get all the glory.  (Incidentally, Indiana has no such restrictions - we had an entry from Brazil!)

I didn't know MI had the limitations. I bought some hops from Great Fermentations in IN, and they sent me an email about your state fair..
