I don't really know how it did, because none of us were there to stick around for the judging, but we didn't win. Congrats to the winners (scroll down for homebrew winners). There were over 20 beers entered, so I don't feel too bad about not winning. I've contacted DC State Fair about getting our scorecard, because I think it would be interesting, and make for good constructive criticism.
Personally I'm looking at this as a good thing, as I'd never before entered a beer into a competition. Although I was super busy with my family and Rick and Geordie were out of town, it was exciting just to know the beer was being judged, and strangers were drinking it who don't feel they have to be polite and tell me it tastes good. When we get the scorecards, I'll post them here.
We also put some sweet labels on some of the bottles. Here's what we entered:
We decided to make the labels super big, so they'd be eye-catching, and a little different from what people are used to seeing. The fact that you can't read it all in one go we feel doesn't detract from it, but instead encourages the viewer to pick up a beer and turn it, thus engaging them. Let me know what you think?
