Following the brewday, the Beyer’s will have their pool open for an after party. So bust out those Speedos if you care to…on second thought, “regular” swimming attire would be appreciated.

May COC results are in!

The May COC had a very good turn out with 9 entries, representing 9 different styles, the quality of the beers was excellent with half the entries scoring a 40+ over better as judged by a James “Smitty” Smith and Mike Grover (who is a BJCP certified judge).

After the mini-BOS, the judges selected Randy Grogan’s Belgian Blond Ale for the Bronze, Terry Olinger’s Helles Bock for the Silver and the Gold goes to Mark Rendon’s Dark Mild. All excellent beers.

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

Thanks to North Texas Homebrew Supply (now open on Mondays) for allowing us to use their store for few hours and Jimmy for staying late.

Reminder you collect Brewer Royale points and a $10 gift card for being a COC judge.
