Special thanks to Marty Juliano for sharing some of the fantastic things that Sierra Nevada has to offer and for the awesome prizes, Our judges: Steve Raimondi, Jason McClellan, Rich Loomis and Mark Sigman for lending us their sophisticated palettes, and lastly to the CT Beer Trail for the continued promotion of great events that keep CT on the forefront of all things craft beer (and home brew!).
And thanks to the family and friends that support our habits!! Without them a lot of this would NOT be possible. Believe it or not, we are already in talks for what we would like to do next year.
