I would say that 2013 was a pretty damn fine year for Bad Mojo.
I brewed 38 batches of beer, approximately 186 gallons with a few of those being single hop Gemini test batches.
A few highlights –
The 2013 Saint Patrick’s Day parade: we served up a Maibock and a Gemini and what turned out to be the Thile experience. 2 out of 3 ain’t bad, I suppose.
2013 War of the Wort by Golden Triangle Brewers – MayheM (Dubbel/Kriek) got a silver for Belgian specialty ales. BlackFyre Stout (bourbon barrel aged double milk stout) got a bronze in wood-aged.
#BigCascade – Bad Mojo contributed to this recipe that was published in BYO and on the AHA site. We brewed it. We dranked it. Would do it again. Spread the madness through twitter.
Initiated the #BrewersCup for HBAMM with JP winning the first go around for the Pale Ale recipe from Brewhaha Supply which also coincided with the legalization of homebrewing. HBAMM had the first legal #BonaFide homebrewing competition in Missippi. Brewed two legal batches on July 1 (#BigCascade and Revivale 2013).
2013 Humpback Humpback (Afroman’s the bomb, bump dat): BMPA got a silver in American Ales.
Alabama Brew Off (WHERE IS ME GOLD) – SB Cascades (#BigCascade) got a gold in English pale ales, and BMPA got a bronze for 10 A – American Pale Ales.
ECBF – had a lot of fun attending this event for the first time, as far as you know.
Jacktoberfest – organized the comp for the fest, had a lot of fun here, too.
2013 Monster Mash – Sinister XPT (Belgian Dark with Kriek) won the whole goddamn thing. Yep (Gold for Sinister and Silver for Revivale 13 in Bagels & Waffles). BMPA got a bronze for American Ales (American Pie). Kingslayer (Blonde) got a silver in Strong Belwas.
And that was pretty much it! Brewed my last batch of the year on 11-11-13 – the third in my ongoing lambic series.
See y’all motherfuckers in 2014!
