  1. 1. what were the results???

    2. where the hell does one acquire Blood Stain Red (i.e who brews it)?

    I’m betting the results are closer than one would think given your lineup.

    very interesting concept…will attempt some kind of similar event for my pals.

  2. 1. I should have collected all the participants’ ballots and tallied them up, but I went with a more democratic approach and had people score their own.
    2. Tricked ya! Blood Stain Red was my own homebrew … and a fair number of people voted for it! Hooray for deceit! Tasty, alcoholic deceit.
