Last month we hosted anther HBX "Exchange" Party. There were some regulars as well as some newcomers to the party scene. The selection of beers ranged from Banana Malted Wine (made by Aaron Fabbri) to many IPAs.
The Best is Show is voted on by the people that come to the party and this time the winner is Dan Adams.
Congrats Dan. Dan was nice enough to answer a few questions for me:
1.How many years have you been brewing?
I've been brewing a little under a year under the name Vanport City Brewing. In that time I've tried to come up with a couple recipes I could have on-tap all the time, experiment with some seasonals, and help teach others the first steps of homebrewing.
