Two Hopslingers were represented this year in a Stout competition organized by our friends at the Wine & Hop Shop. Brian pulled in 2nd place in the Imperial Stout category and Garret snagged 3rd in the Wall to Wall Stout category. This years Stout competiton helped raise over $1000 for the Dane County Humane Society.
This years 1st place winner in the "Other" category was our very own John. He brewed a Coconut flavored IPA. The slight but noticable coconut flavor helped him dominate the "Other" category. Hoptoberfest is a yearly competition held by the Wine & Hop Shop at the Italians Workmans Club on Regent St. Proceeds go directly to the Goodman Community Food Center.
Garret took 1st place at the Parks & Trails Unite Festival held at McDaniel Park with well over seventy-five patrons sampling. Garret submitted his Sic Semper Cervisiam Kolsch-Style Ale which beat out nine other entries. Garret then got to brew at One Barrel Brewing. This was the first year for the Park & Trails Unite Festival. A majority of the proceeds from this event went to help build the capacity of Dane County volunteers and the sixteen friends groups that support individual county parks.
