Brewers' Cup: The Results

The results are in! This weekend’s Brewers’ Cup saw a record number of entries with over 1,000 hopefuls as far as Florida and even Texas. But it was Hoosiers that reined supreme! Both winners of the Guild Champion Brewery trophy and title holder of “Homebrewer of the Year” hail from Indiana.

Local brewer Michael Pearson, the top individual winner, won his second title by narrowly beating out his good friend Bill Ballinger. Talk about a bittersweet victory.

Terms like pale lager, porter and stout are all Greek to me. I will just stick with my Bud and Corona Light. But for those interested in home brewing, the competition is growing rapidly. This means more competition and just an overall fun experience for lovers of all things beer!
