True Grist had another good competition showing this past weekend, this time at the Barnstormer Pro-Am 2018 held at Barnstormer Brewing and Distilling in Barrie, Ontario. Big thanks to all who put themselves out there by entering their brews – it’s not always easy to have your hard work criticized. Our members took home 11 awards, including three in the Best of Show rounds – well done! In addition to our many entries, five True Grist members made the drive to Barrie to judge this delayed event, representing half of all the judges who made it out.
The following True Grist members won awards;
Josh Van Opstal – 1st in combined category 1/10/19 with Wheaticus Hopicus (link to recipe)
