Kolsch conquers competition!
Doug F. and Lagers win 2014 Shootout
Shootout judges and stewards gathered on a bright sunny May morning in a common quest: to judge 51 beer entries for this year’s Nebraska Shootout homebrew contest. By 2:00pm, the score sheets were tallied and we had answers. With a single point lead, the Lincoln Lagers Homebrew Club once again rallied to win the Shootout Trophy, on the back of Doug Finke’s superb Kolsch.
Doug’s beer won the Light Hybrids category as well as Best Of Show. Tom Malowski’s Porter came in second for BOS, with the Railroaders in third and fourth with Matt Misfeldt’s Maibock and Wayne Faris’ Rye Saison.
Wayne also won the Best Damn Beer contest with his English Barleywine – the same beer that also wowed judges in Kansas City at the NHC First Round. In the individual categories, Brian Hoesing took second in Porters and third in Bocks; and Sam Bates took third in Belgian and French Ales.
