Several Hop Jockeys attended this year’s Brewers’ Cup at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, and two of them went home with ribbons. Jason Mundy earned 3rd place for “One Ticket,” an Ordinary Bitter (BJCP category 8A). Rod Myers took 2nd place for “Chiportle,” a chipotle porter in the Spice/Herb/Vegetable category (21A). Rod’s “Weizenheimer,” a Weizenbock (15C) went to mini Best of Show and received an honorable mention.
“Weizenheimer” went on to win 1st place in the Wheat category at the Jasper Strassenfest homebrew competition, sponsored by the Dubois County Suds Club.
Hop Jockeys Abel Garcia, Handsome Bob, and Rod Myers served their homebrew at this year’s GnawBrew Beer, Art, and Music Festival. Rod’s “r00b,” a rhubarb saison, won 3rd place overall in the homebrew competition. See Adam Schick’s account of the festival at the IndianaOnTap.com blog.
