2009 Maryland Governor's Cup--Clipper City Heavy Seas Hang Ten again......

Still awaiting a promised press release from the Brewers Association of Maryland regarding the 2009 Governor's Cup competition, but I have it on high authority that the 2009 Cup (best overall beer) went once again to Clipper City's Hang Ten weizen doppelbock, the second year in a row it won.

From last year's press release from Clipper City:
The Governor’s Cup winner, “Hang Ten” is a classic Bavarian style wheat beer – unfiltered and slightly cloudy, brewed with a high percentage of wheat malt, and using a special yeast yielding aromas of apple and spice. It is also a dopplebock in style, brewed to strength of 10% alcohol by volume (ABV), so it has a very robust flavor, with a subtle sweetness on the finish.
“It is always gratifying to receive acknowledgment for quality work,” said Hugh Sisson, Clipper City’s managing partner. “‘Hang Ten’ is an unusual beer so it is fun to see it get some well deserved recognition. This award, on the heels of our Gold Medal in the World Beer cup, seems to indicate that we are on a pretty good roll!”
