Do you remember how I told you last weekend, my award winning beer was dropped before judging? Well now I have proof it was an award winning beer…
I won 3rd place at the Homebrew Festival this weekend!
Saturday, we went to the Jupiter Summer Beer Festival in Abacoa. We had to drop our beer off at 1:30. The sky didn’t look very nice when we arrived.
Me, Huck, and Karl entered beer into this competition again. My beer was double bagged and taped this time.
The festival did not start until 3PM, so we went to Jumby Bay for lunch.
I ordered the world’s largest fish sandwich. It came with the largest serving of pasta, too.
As we were eating, it started raining and didn’t stop until after 3. I pulled out my raincoat, and we made our way to the event. Hardcore beer fans to drink in the rain ;)
Around 4:30ish, I left the event to find a bathroom (No Porta Potty for me!) When I came back, Huck told me I needed to go the the stage, my beer placed. I was really excited. My first time placing in a Beer Competition!
Karl talking smack!
Karl 1st, Alan 2nd, Me 3rd… Alan won 1st and 2nd last weekend, too.
Side note: Alan is actually friends with our buddy Alex. It’s a small homebrewing world.
I kicked Huck’s ass!
I won $125! I was really hoping for the $500 first place prize, but I’m happy one of our little group won.
Huck took some “great” pictures of me counting my winnings…
This pretty much sums me up, when I’m drinking.
Dianna from The Kitchen Prep came out Saturday, too. We spent some time talking blog stuff. It’s awesome having a blogging buddy.
It was a great day. I made some money and spent time with friends. Win Win!
This is our last fun weekend for a little while. Huck is having surgery Friday, so this weekend, we will be hanging out at the hospital. PARTY!!!
Now, I’m off to spend my money. I have a business I’m trying to start. I’ll tell you more about it when I actually start it. Until then, I’ll give you a hint… it involves Beer. Surprised?
