Competition Corner – March 2022
We have two competition updates that need your attention:
First up is the American Homebrewers Association National Homebrew Competition. This is a multi-step process, and you must be an AHA member to register. Step 1 is to enroll your desire to enter the competition, which you must do by March 29th, 3PM Mountain time. AHA members will have been emailed a username (email address) and password to enroll in the competition, request the amount of beers they’d like to enter and pay for their entries. If there are more requested entries that AHA can handle, they will create a wait list. Actual entry confirmation and bottle submission will not occur until May, so you can still brew something if you intend to enter. Note that you will need SIX bottles for each entry, so don’t overdo it.
Next up are details for the Maltose Falcons Mayfaire Competition. Entry registration is now up and running at: The 44th Annual MaltoseFalcons Mayfaire Homebrew Competition!
Two bottles are needed for each entry, and costs just $10 per entry. This year the Falcons have switched over the the BJCP style guidelines. Entry deadline is April 22nd. If you bring your entries to the Club Meeting on April 21 at Tortugo Brewery, I’ll run them up to the Valley Friday morning.
We also will try to set up a preliminary judging session on the Westside the first week of May, so drop me a line if you can do some judging.
Get those brew kettles going!
