A special thanks to everyone who was able to come out to the 2013 Erie Microbrew Festival! We had an amazing table full of great brewers and beers. Here is the list of who attended and what they brought:
Don Dombrowski and Jillian Orr – Bohemian Pilsner and a Munich Dunkel
Jim McCall – Rye Pale Ale
Jeff McCullor and Steve Anferny – Jack-a-lope Pale Wheat and Amber Ale
Thomas McGrath Frank and Lindsay Cox – English Mild and Chinook/Citra Pale Ale
Chris and Alyssa Page – RIS, Rauchbock and IPA
Neal and Rachel Rerko – 3 C’s Pale Ale and Honey Belgian
Brian Salapek – Berliner Weisse
Ben Smith – Centennial IPA
I felt like we had a great representation of different styles and brewers. I was really proud of everyone and the great beer they brought. And then I found out there was voting. A friend of mine texted me saying we were in fourth place. Soon we advanced to second where we stayed the rest of the festival.
And that’s not all! Jeff and Steve won “Best Hop Forward Beer” of the ENTIRE FESTIVAL with their Jack-a-lope Pale Wheat! I think it’s only appropriate to get kinda cocky about all of this!
All in all it was a great time and I am really glad that people enjoyed our beer so much. Thanks to everyone who poured! Here are some photos Jeff took of the event.
