It’s hard to ignore a beer label plastered with actual grass clippings from the contestants’ front yard. It’s equally hard to ignore the Hargroves, a happy homebrewing couple who entered the contest for the first time last year and won the amateur category with their “Dirty Bird Brew” label. This year’s offering is no less impressive. But the gnomes are allergic to grass.
Prize: two 12-inch tap handles with customized labels from Kestrel Manufacturing Inc.
