Congratulations to all Home Brewers who entered our Summer Beer Competition!  The entries were so creative and diverse!  We hope you had fun coming up with your pineapple-y creations.

Special thank you to Dan Guy from Arcana Brewing, Mike Stevenson from Culver Beer Co, Chris Banker (Communications Officer for the Society of Barley Engineers and BJCP certified judge) and Clay Plummer (Past President for North County Homebrewers' Association (NCHA) and BJCP certified judge) for joining with us to provide your knowledge and expertise as judges!  

And, without further ado, the winners:

1st Place:   Jean-Paul & Guy Perrelet with their Belgian Saison with pineapple. ("Egg Shen's Magic Potion").  From the Judge's comments:  "The pineapple plays nicely with the Belgian clove component."  "Great saison base with a nice fresh pineapple flavor."  

2nd Place:  John Olive with his "Tropical" Imperial IPA.

Honorable Mention:  David Araiza with his Belgian Wit ("Pi Life")
