The winners have been posted and awards handed out! See http://bellinghambrewers.com/competition for the full listing.
Congratulations to Chris McClanahan for taking Best of Show with his Old Ale!! I was very excited to see the champion trophy stay in Bellingham, and Chris is both a great brewer and a great guy. Rounding out the Best of Show was Mark Tanner from Oak Harbor with a Scottish Heavy 70/- taking second and James and Jessica Martini of Sedro-Woolley taking third with a Strawberry Blonde.
Our club officers dominated the People’s Choice voting during the award fest (actually it was very very close), with awards going to myself, Justin, and Chris. Way to represent gentlemen!
Giving shout-outs to local Whatcom Country winners (including both club members and hopefully future club members), congratulations to Jeremy Reeves, Fred Larsen, Adam Blanquart, and McLean Johnson. We had 13 medals go to Whatcom County brewers this year!
