Thank you to all the homebrewers who took the time to participate in our Heavy Seas Letter of Marque Contest. Each of the beers submitted were surprisingly good, not a single bad one in the batch. A variety of styles were entered from Scotch Ales to a Wheat Pale Ale. There’s was even a beer brewed with honey grams!
Judging was done by the full crew at the brewery. In the elimination round, brews were judge for adherence to style and overall drinkability. Thirteen beers moved on and then there were 5. Merits of each were discussed and the beer re-sampled. Here are the final results.
