Cheers to Belgian Beers Winner Announced

This just in from Brian Butenschoen, Director of the Oregon Brewers Guild (bold mine):
We had 289 votes.

In first place was the Lucky Labrador Brewing's Malt Bomb Belgian. In second place was the Laurelwood Brewing's Saison du Arduinna and in third place was the Alameda Brewhouse Lucky Devil.

The first place winner gets to host and name the charity for next year.
I have to say I'm a little shocked by the winner and the absence of any of my faves in the list. Perhaps the collective palate of Beervana has yet to attune itself to Belgian styles. Rarely do I feel so out of step...

Anyway, Congrats to the Lucky Lab!
