Doug King Comp A Rousing Success--Yet I Didn't Win!!! by the Alewench

We had a fine Doug King Competition yesterday. You shoulda been there if ya weren't!! Over 40 judges and many stewards (including my good friend Gina) converged on the Eagle Rock Brewery bright and early on the morning of the 21st. With over 100 entries to judge, we knew we were in for a long but very fulfilling and filling day! The day started off with some nice pumpkin bread baked by yours truly and a great burrito casserole, complete with salsa and guac, prepared by Rocky (the kegmaster and go-to guy for the day).

The judging went on and on with a break coming at lunch. Super-Treasurer Kent brought the bbq and treated everyone to freshly made cheeseburgers and brats, accompanied by some great tater wedges and potato salad. No easy-feat, considering the pop-ups had to be erected first cause it was raining. We Falcons know how to eat and drink only the best. 

By 3:30, we were finally down to the Best of Show, having to move the judges into the brewery area, as the place had to open for regular business at 4:00.  A spectrum of beer colors and styles filled the judges final decision of the day.  Would it be the Prohibition Lager, the Stout or the Bock....... The winner of the day turned out to be the Traditional Bock brewed by Brewer Suprema Norm Jufer!!  Congratulations!!! Thanks to all at Eagle Rock Brewery for hosting our event!!
