2006 Doug King Memorial Lager and Specialty Beer Competition
(AHA and BJCP Sanctioned)
Sponsored by The Maltose Falcons Homebrewing Society

   Third year running this competition and we're continuing to grow the competition. This year, we had 41 entries and it was the first year we had keg entries. Entries ranged from your standard American pilsner to saisons made with pumpkins and stouts with cherries and rum.

Thanks to everyone involved in the competition. These beers reached out and captured the spirit of inventive brewing that powered Doug.

Also, I'd like to point out that it's spooky that Doug's competition was won on his birthday with a beer brewed by another "King".
