To quote from the American Homebrewers Association website:
“Each year, your American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Governing Committee selects a recipient for the annual AHA Governing Committee Recognition Award. The award honors outstanding service to the community of homebrewers, and is announced during the National Homebrewers Conference.”
The 2015 recipient: Stan Hieronymus.
The award was handed out Saturday in San Diego. I wasn’t there. I agree, that seems somewhat rude. But Daria and I went to Washington, D.C., along with our daughter, Sierra, for “Colonial Inauguration” at George Washington University, where she’ll be a freshman in September.
I think I used the words flabbergasted and humbled in the brief video they asked me to make. I expect to remain in that state for some time.
