There were a lot of positive things that happened with the change in venue and a few areas where we can improve things - but overall I believe it was a great competition. I would like to have seen more club members enter and our entries were down this year. The committee had some thoughts on changes for next year and will be meeting next month to discuss ideas.

Great beer and would have scored higher as a Fruit/Veg/Herb beer

*Two first places were awarded in this category due to a clerical error by the contest organizer. It was felt that the neither entrant nor the rightful 2nd & 3rd place contestants should be punished for that error.

I will have a complete report for the June meeting.
