So it looks like this is the first medal for Ron Gansberg at the Raccoon Lodge (Cascade Brewing), for Cascade Lakes, and possibly for Hopworks. In my continuing effort to flog the GABF horse, I offer kudos to the first-time winners.
Personally, I think Ron was robbed on his Kriek, and if he sent in that transcendent apricot ale he had earlier this year and didn't win anything, then he was seriously robbed. However, he's very much in the running for the coveted Satori Award, which is a far more selective honor. So he's got that goin' for him.
