2007 Doug King Memorial Lager and Specialty Beer Competition
(AHA and BJCP Sanctioned)
Sponsored by The Maltose Falcons Homebrewing Society

   In it's fourth year, the DKM almost double it's entries again! This year we had 80 entries, including 19 entries in our new Imperial Anything category. Entries came in from Maine, Massachusetts, the Carolinas, Oregon, Minnesota, Colorado and of course California. Not too shabby. Hopefully we can keep doing Doug proud. Many thanks to the 28 judges and stewards who took their Saturday and put down their thoughts and observations on the entries. And hey, Todd, you won this time!
