State Fair Hardware

 

IMG_7714

The Kentucky State Fair opens in Louisville this week with all the rides, exhibits, animals and fan fare. Homebrewers competed for state bragging rights this weekend. Local, Regional and National judges selected winners in each of the 28 beer categories, as well as overall winners in Best of Show and the Brewer of the Year. We talked with Tim Rosenberger (shown sporting the medals) who coordinates the event.

Complete winner’s list below.
