Thanks to everyone for participating. We'll summarize our judge's notes on the styles soon!
What this means: Jerome, Brandon and I will have to formulate a recipe that combines the elements and flavors of both beers. Next we get to brew the beer "scaled-up" to 1 barrel (30 gallons). Then throughout the National Homebrewers Conference, Sasquatch himself will serve the beer to conference attendees. We will be recognized at the conference as the originator of the "Sasquatchian Ale" style and have the honor of serving their beer to renowned members of the American Homebrewers Association.
I've always wanted to do the "scale-up" process that comes with being one of Puget Sound Pro-Am winners, so I'm mostly excited for that part. And it's going to be a lot of fun to do this with Brandon and Jerome (who also part of Wayward Brewers and rental space). Plus so many people at the conference will get to try a beer that I brewed!!
