The first COC of ’24 was a great success with 12 entries, all different styles, which makes for a fun round of judging. After considerable discussion among the judges; Sir Bill Lawrence, Doug Hicks, Garrett Bryan, Malachy Bryan and Eric Morgan, the judges selected a Belgian Single brewed by Jimmy Orkin for the bronze, an American Wheat brewed by James “Smitty” Smith for the silver and the gold goes to Mark Rendon for his British Brown Ale. All excellent beers.
You can see the results over at coc.nthba.org 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 Eric for staying late.
Reminder you collect Brewer Royale points for being a COC judge.
Thanks again to all who entered, the next COC will be in March, registration will open March 1st and close the day of the March club meeting (COC takes place on the odd numbered months).
