2012 Mayfaire Homebrew Competition


2012 Mayfaire organized by the Maltose Falcons

Holy cow! 550 entries registered and a bunch of judges to run through them all. In the end, the judges at the Best of Show Panel commented on the stellar nature of the winners and just how tough the final judging was. In the end, the bird goes to a brewer known well to the Falcons, particularly for his Belgians. Congrats Mike!
