  1. OK, I call shenanigans. How did Berry Weiss beat Raspberry Tart? I like Berry Weiss. I drank it in college quite a bit, but there is no way it is better that Raspberry Tart. You drink BW at a bar; you relish RT.

    Also, what is with New Grist winning? It has an aftertaste like rubber tires. Granted it was for Experimental in 2006 and Gluten Free in 2007, but still. I am kind of scared to try ones that didn't win in those categories. :P
