LABBC 2017 Results!

Thanks to everyone who participated.  A couple of special thank you’s:

Thank you to all of our sponsors!  Without you we couldn’t host this event every year.

Thank you to Los Angeles Ale Works for hosting us this year!

 

Volunteers!  You make this competition great every year and this year was no exception.  Thanks to the competition committee for helping keep this competition in order!

We are handing out awards in person at the next Pacific Gravity club meeting which is being held at Los Angeles Ale Works on April 20th.  If you can’t make it to the meeting I will be shipping out ribbons after that meeting, so you should receive yours within a few weeks after April 20th.  Please join us for this club meeting.  We will be pouring the left over bottles from the competition for everyone in attendance.  This club meeting is also our “Belgian” club meeting where we ask our club members to bring Belgian beers.  We would love it if participants brought along their winning beers to share!  If you donated a cooler for the event we will have them on site @ LAAW for you to pick up.

I will be in touch with our BOS winner to schedule their ProAM brew at LA Ale Works shortly!  Congrats to all of the winners!  Great job everyone.
