The Keystone CupThe War is over! The 16th annual War of the Worts was a huge success, with 83 judges gathering to evaluate 765 entries, and now the first leg of the Keystone Cup is in the books. The Keystone Hops have jumped out to an early 14 point lead, but as we have seen in the past leads can disappear rather quickly at the Malt Madness competition in the fall. Ferment on!
