Fellow MASHers!

The in house dry stout competition is just a short month away. A reminder that this competition is for all those that have paid their 2014 club dues as of the February 13th meeting.

Here is a quick run down of how this competition will work. Beers will be judged to the BJCP 2008 style guidelines. The category we will be judging is 13A – dry stouts. Please read up on the style guidelines as we will be judging them accordingly as would be in a sanctioned BJCP competition.

Drop off window – Please drop off two 12oz bottles. Please make sure these bottles are mark free, meaning no defining marks. Raised letters such as Sam Adams, Green Flash, Dogfish Head etc etc, will be accepted. Clear or blacked out bottle caps. For example, no Tupper’s craft brew caps or Stomp n Crush caps. Please black them out with a sharpie. PLEASE write your name on paper and attach it to your bottles with a rubber band. Have your entries dropped off by Saturday March 1st BY 5PM @ Stomp N Crush.

Judging will be taking place between March 2-9.

The judging is closed to all but judges. Winners will be announced during the March meeting. Your brews will be judged by 3 certified BJCP judges who all have many many years of BJCP competition experience and who to which I’m very grateful for volunteering to help out.

Also please save enough of your stout to share with all at the March meeting. After all its only a few days away from St. Patty’s day!

Cheers!

Mike

That’s it for now.  Brew On!
