  1. Peter, that is VERY cool! Its nice to get some recognition, and also be able to brew it on a large enough scale to share with the masses! Maybe it will make regular rotation! Anyway, I’ll definitely go and check it out when its available! Again, congrats on the win!

  2. I should probably use more exclamation points!

      @Thomas, thanks! after 3 second place finishes in a row, it is nice to finally break through. But what is great about the 2nd place finishes, it has really driven me to refine my recipes, learn more about the ingredients I’m using and how they work together, and be more diligent with my process.

      @Vanessa, thanks i think i may have even screamed like a school girl when the organizer told me :-), it was an out of the blue call at 9:30 at night and totally caught me off guard. I’m excited to see what my scores were for the beer and the official comments on the BJCP score cards along with the judges BJCP ranks.

      @michael, thanks! Now that I’m over that hump of winning something, it is refueling that urge to continue on the journey of future brewpub.

  6. Congrats again Peter! That is incredibly awesome.

      Thanks Lee and John. I hope you guys get to try it soon. I’m bringing a bunch on my San Francisco trip, but I’ll drop some off for next Friday’s #brewyork at the designated location 🙂

  10. Sorachi Patersbier – Sounds awesome. I always do my patersbier with Lublin, and everyone loves that. Hope you dont mind if I borrow your idea? Does the citrus come through strong? I did a few IPA’s with sorachi at 60 and 5 and didnt like it too much!

      @lucas, Please use it, that is why I post these recipes. I used a 1/2oz close to the end out so that the light pilsner grain didn’t get over shadowed. It is a strong hop, I use it with much restraint.
