Home Brew Showdown Results
Our October meeting featured a battle of home brewing
titans vying for DB15 medals in the Oktoberfest category.
In a blind taste test the club home brewers once again
proved why they are recognized as some of the very best in
the state. Every brewer received outstanding scores with
our winners even besting the results from commercial
breweries Magic Hat and Dundee!
The gold medal was awarded to Chris Johnson who
continued his amazing streak of winning in DB15
Showdowns. The silver medal was won by Dan Hodge,
beer writer and champion home brewer (read Dan's latest
BeerNexus column). The bronze medal went to brewing
phenom Patrick Ford who has won medals in two of his
first three competitions.
Congratulations to our winners and to all who entered.
Most Arrogant Week

|Baseball Returns on November 14!
Our November meeting will be a head to head
beer tasting contest between all eight teams in the
recent Major League Baseball playoffs!
Does the city with the best team have the best beer?
Join us at the meeting and help decide for yourself.
The DB15 has secured beers from the brewery closest
to the actual stadium of each MLB playoff team and
will match them in one-on-one tasting showdowns until
only two are left for the final battle in ourWorld Series
of Brew. All the beers are outstanding but we're
keeping them a secret until the meeting.
