Cheers to Peter Salmond, Erik Norlander and Oskar Norlander, three New York City homebrewers who showed off what NYC craft beer is all about last weekend at the National Homebrew Competition in San Diego.
The trio was awarded Best Sour and Best in Show for their Gueuze and earned the prized Homebrewer of the Year Award.
The Gueuze in question is the product of four years of a solera system, aging rotating batches of lambic in a California zinfandel barrel for four years. The barrel came from the Norlander’s father in California, and the hops for the base beer were grown by Peter’s father in his backyard in Portland, Oregon. The final beer is an incredible culmination of time, effort, brewing smarts and a bit of beer magic.
Cheers, and congratulations to Peter, Erik and Oskar!
