Home Brew Showdown Winners

Our February  meeting saw some of the finest home brewers in the
state compete for medals in the Belgium Dubbel category.
The dubbel, a dark, rich, malty ale, traces its origins back to the
Trappist Abbey of Westmalle in 1856.  
Our prize winners did the style, its heritage, and the DB15 proud.

Gold Medal -  Chris Johnson
Silver Medal - Jim Prusinowski
Bronze Medal - Kimberly Strickland

Congratulations to these outstanding brewers!
