2013 Bellingham Best of the Bay

One of the larger Washington State home brew competitions, 232 entries, Bellingham Best of the Bay 2013 and the winners have been announced.

I had the opportunity to help judge this competition on August 3rd at Boundary Bay and had a great time meeting and judging with some new friends and old.

I feel the Mid Columbia Zymurgy Association of the Tri-Cities (Kennewick Pasco Richland), represented well for a west side Competition, especially the submissions by James Golovich, but I'll take an Honorable Mention for a mistake (it was supposed to be a Northern English Brown - Damn you pale chocolate malt...)
