The Minnesota Medal – My 50 State Medal Pursuit

I genuinely enjoy this 50-state medal pursuit, but these next few competitions have been the best – at least in preparing for these competitions. That is all due to the fact that I didn’t have to brew anything for these competitions!

The timing to wrap up the Florida Circuit competition season and my 2023 50-state medal season couldn’t have been more perfect.

To end the Florida circuit on a high note, I did fresh brews of my most successful beers, and it paid off with a gold medal, a silver medal, and a bronze best of show to end my 2023 Florida Season. With only one competition slated for these beers, I have plenty to enter in the last two out-of-state competitions I had signed up for in 2023 (and one for 2024!).

I entered three beers in the 2023 Nordeast Brewers Alliance Homebrew Competition for the Minnesota medal attempt. I entered my Pale Ale, American Amber Ale, and my Pale Belgian Beer.

In the end, the American Amber Ale brought home the Minnesota medal, a bronze.

I have one more competition for 2023 and, hopefully, one more state to add to my list. But until those results, I’m pretty happy with my efforts in the pursuit this year!
