Whitbeck scores again! An avid all-grain brewer and full-time stay-at-home dad, Chris placed third in the amateur category last year for his Cottontail Pale Ale. If you’re sensing a hare-brained theme, you’re right: Whitbeck named his home-brewery “Rabbit Brewing Company” after the street he lives on, and his submissions this year included Angora Amber, Peter Rabbit Porter and Jack Rabbit Red. Bet he uses a lot of hops.
Prize: 60-foot copper wort chiller with brass hose connection from The Grape and Granary.
