On Saturday, July 24 the Kearney Area Brewers hosted the 2010 Buffalo County Fair Beer/Mead/Wine Competition at Thunderhead Brewing Co. The competition kicked off @ 9:00AM and wrapped up @ 3:00PM. A total of 76 entries were judged by 10 Judges. A special THANKS goes out to the judges who traveled from Omaha & Lincoln. You guys & gals were amazing!!! Thunderhead Brewing (Trevor Schaben) provided pizza for the Judges & Stewards after the competition. If you haven’t tried Thunderhead pizza, well, you haven’t lived!
The results can be viewed under the Competition Tab at the top of the page.
Here are a few pics of the event as it unraveled. No, Trevor didn’t drink all those beers, but he did try each & every one.
