Entries for Pacific Brewers Cup will be due at the shop on September 4th. This year the competition is hosted by the Strand Brewers’ Club. Judging will be held on September 19, at the Courtyard Los Angeles LAX/El Segundo. The hotel is located at 2000 East Mariposa Avenue in El Segundo, about 1 mile south of LAX. We’ll want to have a good turnout for this one, both from an entry standpoint and from a judging/stewarding standpoint. More details of the competition can be found at: http://www.strandbrewers.org/pbc/index.htm.
The AHA has announced the rest of the Club-only competitions for 2009 and beyond, so you can plan these well in advance. The next competition is for European Amber Lagers, BJCP category 3. We will judge these at the September Club meeting on September 17th. Please bring 3 bottles for each entry, and please fill out the entry forms which you can download from the AHA website at: http://www.beertown.org/homebrewing/pdf/entry_recipe.pdf. The club picks up the entry fees and shipping for this one, so it is free to you.
