    Texas represented well at WBC this year. Saint Arnold won three medals: Pumpkinator-Silver for Field or pumpkin beer category. Santo- Bronze for American Dark Lager. Endeavour- silver for Imperial IPA.

    Hops and Grains took gold for Alteration- German style brown/dusseldorf style alt bier.

    Live oak took silver for Primus- German style weizenbock.

    As a brewer for St. Arnold, that was a special night. Especially for Endeavour. Receiving a medal in the DIPA category amongst 93 other entries is pretty awesome.

    Go Texas!

    What are the fundamental differences between DR9 and Pumpkinator. Is there any reason why the next batch couldn't be a better clone?

    They should double production and distribute half and age the other half in Makers Mark barrels.

    I will bring one of each to the next gman tasting and you can check out the difference yourself.
