CALLING ALL HOMEBREWERS!
ANNOUNCING The First Annual ABC Brews Crews Homebrew Competition
The First Annual ABC Brews Crews Homebrew Competition is a BJCP sanctioned event open to any homebrewer nationwide, and offers as a grand prize the opportunity to brew a batch of the winning beer on the seven barrel house system at the Arbor Brewing Company in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Along with this honor, the winning homebrewer will receive ten tickets to the release party, a keg of beer from the batch, and the beer's custom tap handle used in the pub once the beer runs out. First prize in each category will be an engraved beer stein, and second and third places will receive medals.
Entries should be sent to arrive April 28 through May 12 at:
720 Norris St.
Ypsilanti, MI 48198
In-person entries can also be made to the same location between 1-5pm on weekdays and 11am-5pm on weekends. Each entry costs $6 and requires submission of two bottles of beer (brewers may submit as many entries as they wish, of course).
Entries must be registered on-line prior to sending. Checks should be made payable to Aron Butler, Competition Director, and mailed to:
3287 Oak Dr.
Ypsilanti, MI 48197
First round judging is to be held May 19th at the Corner Brewery. The best of show panel and awards presentation will be two weeks later, on the afternoon of June 2nd also at the Corner Brewery) coinciding with an AHA rally going on that day. Judges will be using the 2004 BJCP styles, though we will aggregate similar styles where there may be few entries to make the competition more meaningful.
