    BREAKING NEWS (and unoffical news until it's postedon the CBOY Site) - LEE HILL IS THE 2014 CAROLINA BREWER OF THE YEAR!! I don't recall, at least from the last 10 years, anyone that has done this back to back. Words escape me at this point, because "Well Done" and "Congrats" don't seem to be appropriate for such dedication and sheer brewing talent.

    The Triad region is no stranger to having the best brewers in the Carolina’s. For 5 out of the last 6 years, our locale has been home to the champs and this year is no different. Lee Hill captured the 2013 crown, but it was not easy and it went down to a final point and ribbon count at the last competition at the Palmetto State Brewers Open in Columbia, SC. Riding on Lee’s coat tails, HOPS had an extraordinarily strong showing, by ALL of our members, to finish the year in second ...
