2005 Doug King Memorial Lager and Specialty Beer Competition
(AHA and BJCP Sanctioned)
Sponsored by The Maltose Falcons Homebrewing Society

   In our second year of running this competition, we've spread our wings a little bit further. Entries came in from as far as Michigan. Beers ranged from the classic Dougweiser to beers filled with cucumbers and strange spiced brews. Thanks to everyone involved in the competition. These beers reached out and captured the spirit of inventive brewing that powered Doug.
