Pardon the pun, WOW! The 18th Annual War of the Worts boasted a total of 861 entries and 335 participants, judges and stewards. We want to send out a heartfelt thanks to the competition sponsors (please thank them with your patronage!), and to Brian Krebs and all of the other organizers, stewards and judges who made this event possible and so much fun. We also want to congratulate the winners, especially the Best of Show winners Lee Kexel (1st Place, Brown Porter), Ed Walkowski (2nd Place, Apple Cherry Cider) and Jeff Stein (3rd Place, Framboise). Impressively, Ed and Jeff both took home B.O.S. awards last year, too! Donald & Stephen Boyle received an honorable mention for their Berry Melomel. You can visit the Keystone Hops website to see the complete competition results, and check out our photo gallery from the event.
