Just got the news that my friend and colleague Walter Wallner won a couple blue ribbons and the Brewmaster’s Cup at the Greg Noonan Memorial Homebrewers’ Competition. Walter won a 1st place for his Munich Helles lager and for his Vienna lager, the Vienna also won the Brewmaster’s Cup, which means that he will get a chance to brew it on a larger scale at the Vermont Pub & Brewery in Burlington. Seeing that Walter is from Austria, who better to win with a Vienna? I’d like to say that I had a lot to do with Walter’s success, but in reality all I did was make sure his entries got to the competition safely… Nice going, mein freund!
Another of my friends and shop customers, Ben Linehan, won a 2nd place for his Dusseldorfer Altbier – again, well done!
