No Threepeat in the Ace of Clubs

The 18th annual Eight Seconds of Froth Competition was held on May 19 with over 400 entries.

On the whole, the Hoppers kicked ass, but lost out on a threepeat of winning the Ace of Clubs designation.

On the bright side, our own Brian Pramov won another pro-am with his B-Rye American Amber, this time with the Altitude Chophouse and Brewery in Laramie. Now, he has to choose where to brew his recipe. Decisions, decisions…

Other Hopper winners were:

Michael Bade

  • 1st in Pilsner with Goes to Eleven (German Pilsner)
  • 2nd in Dark Lager with Eclipse (Schwarzbier)
  • 1st in Bock with Shock Bock (Maibock/Helles Bock)
  • 3rd in India Pale Ale (IPA) with Simcolicious (American IPA)

Greg Geiger

  • 1st in Stout with Chase’s Grit (Imperial Stout)
  • 2nd in Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer with Chocolate Thunder (Spiced Beer)
  • 2nd in Smoke-Flavored & Wood-Aged Beer with Stalin’s Skidmarks (RHBC Barrel Project Imperial Stout)

Geoff Humphrey

  • 3rd in Dark Lager with Your Schwarz is as Big as Mine (Schwarzbier)

Jason Kruegel

  • 3rd in Bock with Advanced Lagerithim (Doppelbock)

Kelly Kruegel

  • 3rd in Smoke-Flavored & Wood-Aged Beer with Scotchy, Scotchy, Scotch (RHBC Barrel Project Wee Heavy)

Congrats to all!

We’ll get the trophy back next year…
