After years of brewing for ourselves, friends and family, festivals and charity events, we finally decided to enter our beer into competition. So, in early October we shipped off four of our beers to be judged in the 34th annual California State Homebrew Competition.
This year’s competition consisted of 14 categories and had 386 beer entries. We submitted beers to the Mixed Style, Dark Lager, Brown and Specialty categories. After all the judging was done we ended up with a great surprise. We had won our first award, a second place ribbon in the mixed style category for our California Rye Common beer.
