After a year and a half of covid-related delays, we are please to announce the winners of the 2021 Pacific Brewer Cup. Congratulation to Steven Severn of the Orange County Mash-ups for his Best of Show entry Janet’s Brown Ale, brewed as a memorial to Mike “Tasty” McDole, a renowned homebrewer who passed away just over a year ago. Janet’s Brown Ale was itself a memorial brew first brewed by Tasty to honor the memory of his wife Janet who passed away in 2001. Congratulations Steven, and a salute to your fallen comrades.
Our first Runner-up was a dry sparkling Cider brewed by Kyle Brawley. Rounding out the top three was a Märzen brewed by Carl Townsend.
The Best Brewer award goes to Jon Silvertooth of Long Beach Homebrewers. Jon had three first-place beers, and also led the charge for the Top Club award which goes to Long Beach Homebrewers.
