2008 World Beer Cup

Wow, what an amazing trip. I spent 3 days judging everything from American Light Lager to Wood and Barrel-aged Strong Beer at the World Beer Cup in San Diego. I visited Stone's new mega facility in North County. In addition, I attended a private Brewmaster's Dinner at The Lost Abbey. But the high light of the whole event was bringing home a Gold medal for Alt and in the Way. I only make this beer twice a year so look for it around the beginning of fall.

I also want to give a shout out to all my fellow Utah brewers who brought home medals. We did really well as a State, and all Utah craft beer drinkers should be proud. We will be serving up Acapulco Gold starting April 28th to celebrate the patio opening. And I am brewing a German Weissbier this Friday, so look for it in a couple of weeks.
