BURP Monthly Competition Winners – February 2019

In the spirit of FebBREWary’s joint JamBEERee meeting, our February IPA competition included entries from three of the four homebrew clubs that participated in the event: BURP, DC Homebrewers and GRiST. All told, ten beers were entered in the competition – evenly split between Category 21A (American IPA) and 21B (Specialty IPA).

Continuing the tripartite nature of the competition, our ribbon winners also represented the trio of clubs: 3rd place went to DC Homebrewers’ Martin Wilson for his ‘I Too Was Bamboozled’ IPA; GRiST’s Tim Gerbracht took home 2nd place with his New Years NEIPA; and longtime BURPer – and immediate past Minister of Culture – Matt Pyle received top honors for his American IPA.

Thanks to our quartet of judges – BURPers Becky Pyle and Hillary Sadoff (also a DC Homebrewer), Stephen Clapham of DC Homebrewers and Rob Silver from GRiST – for lending their time and talents at the judging table.
