There have been numerous club members who have done well at the recent homebrew competitions. Thank you to all who entered Minnesota Mash-Out and Great Northern Brew Ha Ha under the banner of the Minnesota Home Brewers Association. Congratulations to the following members who are listed below! Special recognition goes to Colby Reineke, who cleaned up at Mash-Out, to Kevin Meintsma, who did well in both contests, and to Nathan Steigman for taking the Mead Best of Show(!) at Mash-Out. If you entered but didn’t win, please take heart; the MHBA board went 0-for-11 with their Mash-Out entries . . .
Hopefully we’ll get to taste some of these award-winning beverages at the annual business meeting at InBound at 2:00, Sunday, February 24th.
