Yes for sure, seems like a quick turnaround for a lager though!

Thanks, same to you man.

I never seem to pull off my best beers for competitions but this saison I made is an absolute beauty. I’m hesitant to part with it hahaha

Good luck everybody, perhaps we can discuss some carpooling for us Halifax folks when it gets to that point.

"Twenty years ago — a time, by the way, that hops such as Simcoe and Citra were already being developed, but weren’t about to find immediate popularity — there wasn’t a brewer on earth who would have gone to the annual Hop Growers of American convention and said, “I’m going to have a beer that we make 4,000 barrels of, one time a year. It flies off the shelf at damn near $20 a six-pack, and you know what it smells like? It smells like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree.” - Bell’s Brewery Director of Operations John Mallet on the scent of their popular Hopslam.

Any brewnosers making the trip over for the day on Saturday that may have room for me to tag along and help split expenses?

Decided not to go. Didn’t hear about a final round or anything like that so it’ll be a nice and suspenseful wait on the results.

Best of luck all you

Are they contacting the top entries ahead of the final judging like in other comps? Or just waiting until tomorrow to reveal the winners?
