Congratulations to everyone who entered beer, mead and cider in the 2014 Upper Mississippi Mashout! A big congratulations to everyone who medaled as well!
For those unfamiliar with Mashout, it is one of the largest homebrew contests in the country, drawing nearly 1000 entries from coast to coast. Mashout was started in 2002 and is sponsored by the Minnesota Homebrewers Association and the St Paul Home Brewers Club. Judges and volunteers from around the region, and around the country, descend on the Twin Cities to judge these entries as well as take part in educational seminars and catch up with friends.
