As you all should be aware (I did tell you months ago to brew for these styles!), Vanbrewers and the BC Beer Awards are hosting a public competition for Harvest and Oktoberfest style beers. Think fresh hops, pumpkin, festbiere, etc. Judging will be per BJCP Style Guidlines, but the Best of Show round will focus only on Harvest/Oktoberfest styles. First place will be brewing their beer with Nigel and Conrad over at soon-to-be Brassneck Brewing. That beer will then be available for the 2013 BC Beer Awards. Pretty sweet, right!
Drop off for this FREE competition is going to be at the September meeting (the 27th), or at Matt's house after that. Bottles must be free of markings and labels, caps unmarked or blacked out, and a BJCP Bottle ID tag attached. The cut-off date is October 5. We will not be accepting entries after this date.
If you have any further questions, contact Scott. Cheers!
