In between the Red Sox/Yankees game and the Cubbies/Marlines game, my sweetheart and I watched, (but of course), the Food Network's coverage of the Great American Beer Festival held last weekend in Denver, Colorado. The show was pretty darn interesting...grown men literally crying in their beer (with joy), grown women teaching grown men about the nuances of beer tasting. The show followed three brewer's results (or lack thereof), but hey, we want to know MORE. After a little google action, I found the site listing this year's winners (see below). Amazing. From thousands of beer entries, the judges picked three winners (gold, silver, bronze) within a category of beer. Who knew there were so many varieties of beer? So many breweries? Gives a whole new meaning to "too little time." Okay, enjoy yourselves while you find out if your local brew pub won big, for me it is time to get back to the Cubbies' game with one bottle of our local Olympia brewery's Fish Tale Ale's Organic Amber and one bottle of their Mudshark Porter.
