The medals go to …….

For the penultimate COC of ’23 the competition was close with 10 entries in 10 different styles. After much discussion the judges, Amanda Garland, James “Smitty” Smith, David Jones and the esteemed Bill Lawrence, selected Heath Garth and his Marzen for the Bronze, Steve Littel picked up the Silver for his Wesissbier, and Marcio Fazzani took home the Gold with his Catharina Sour.

You can see the results over at and download your score sheet.

Thanks to North Texas Homebrew Supply for allowing us to use their store for few hours and Terry Olinger for staying late.

Reminder you collect Brewer Royale points for being a COC judge.

Thanks again to all who entered, the last COC of the year will be in November, registration will open November 1st and close the day of the November club meeting (COC takes place on the odd numbered months).

Cheers John,
