Last week I told you I would have some exciting news after Friday and I think it’s high time I share it with you. Your patience has paid off friends! I’ll give you a picture clue:


That’s right, the Regular Guys have finally entered a beer into competition! Our Hot Blonde Jalapeño Blonde Ale has officially been entered in two categories in the 19th Annual Microfest here in St. Louis, Missouri. Our beautiful lady will compete in the Blonde Ale category as well as the Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer category.

A kudos and a fist bump from my dad is great and all, but he likes pretty much anything I do. We are really looking forward to getting some unbiased feedback from professional beer judges. Tasting and judging is April 26th and 27th so we’ll keep you posted!

And now a little update. Saturday night we got together to bottle our Hot Blonde Jalapeño Blonde Ale, keg and carbonate our unnamed EPA, and transfer our Smokey Grove Apple Smoked Porter to secondary and add more apples.

The Hot Blonde is a beautiful hay color and carbonated perfectly. I can’t say enough good things about the aroma and flavor of this beer. Our unnamed EPA smells and already tastes amazing,  even without carbonation. The Smokey Grove has this wonderfully light smokey aroma with a punch of apple and is black as black can be!

All in all it was a good weekend for beer. Until next time…
