This year's PFBF homebrew competition featured so many great fruit beers and combinations, the judges (thanks again judges!!!) had quite a difficult time picking their favorites. Somehow, they managed to get the job done. Perhaps all the free beer helped...
These winners were announced at the PFBF this past weekend. In case you missed it, here they are:
Category Winners (prize: $20 Burnside Brewing gift certificate)
Light: Bryan Kast -- Orange Peel Red Ale
Dark: Chuck Macaluso -- Blueberry Raspberry Porter
Sour/Wild: Peter McDowell -- Strawberry Farmhouse Ale
Spice/Herb: Colin Pearson -- Basil Watermelon Blonde Ale
Cider/Perry: Ritch Marvin -- Apple Pear Cherry Cider (wild fermentation)
Best of Show (prize: additional $50 Burnside Brewing gift certificate)
Congratulations to all the winners! We look forward to the entries next year's talent will proffer. Thank you again to Burnside Brewing Company for their continued support of local homebrewers and the Oregon Brew Crew.
