Beer Blogger Brewoff, the Results are in!
After 2 months, we finally had our Beer Blogger Brewoff tasting. It was amazing the quality and variety of beer made from such a simple 5.5% abv stout. I applaud Aaron, Derek, Erik, Joseph and Nate for coming through with some very creative and tasty beers. With all our beers brewed, mailed, and ready to be consumed; six of us got together on a Skype conference and had a virtual tasting. It was extremely cool to share these beers while we were spread all over the country, although it felt like we were all in the same room.
Check out the podcast we recorded of the tasting:

As I said before a great set of beers that made this First Brew-off an overwhelming success. When all was consumed the overwhelming favorite was Derek’s Molasses addition. The molasses gave this beer a wonderful aroma and great flavor. Well done, Derek. As winner of the first Brew-off, you get nothing, except the satisfaction of knowing you made a great beer that was truly appreciated by a bunch of beer geeks.
There will be a second Brew-off coming, please contact me if you’d like to join in on the fun. You don’t need to be a blogger or even an experienced brewer, just willing to throw your beer into the ring!
