AHA/NHC Gold Medal Homebrew Recipes by Style

UPDATE: You'll find and updated list here, with the 2011 recipes included.

I took out links to all the pre-2004 recipes. The older recipes were kept at rather than at the AHA website, and those older recipes seem to be unavailable now.

The AHA Wiki is great for some stuff. In the good news section, they have the last seven years worth of first place homebrew recipes:
In the not-so-good news section, you need to weed through all seven years to find the one Belgian Dubbel recipe you want. Or you may end up sifting through all seven years only to find out that that a Brown Porter never got the gold in the Porter category because the Robust Porters and Baltic Porters always win; so you need to keep looking for that superb Brown Porter recipe elsewhere.

I decided to help them get organized, so here you go. The following list has the Gold Medal-winning recipe in each category of the AHA National Homebrew Competition (NHC) for the last twelve years. (This list was recently updated to include recipes from 2004 and earlier. The list of BJCP categories changed in 2005, so I've tried to fit the earlier entries where they make sense.)
