Today was the annual home brew competition of the Hudson Valley Home Brewers, of which I am a member. I always submit a beer, not because I think I am the best brewer in the world, but it's always interesting to get other people's opinion.
Not surprisingly, I didn't win a prize, and that is fine, because I had a really good time. I tried a lot of home brew, got to know a few new people, and met already familiar faces. It is a small world up here, but I still get surprised by how people are connected, and who knows whom.
