I checked with Charlie Papazian to get the details on the upcoming
AHA National Homebrew Competition.
As Mike Fertsch indicated, the first round judging will be done in Boulder.
The second and Best of Show rounds will be in Ft Mitchel KY, during the
week of the conference.
For each entry, one bottle must be received at the AHA office by 5:00 PM
on April 25. Those who go on to the second round will be notifyed by
first class mail the week of May 15. For second and final round judging
two bottles must be sent to Ft Mitchel by June 2.
All entries must be accompanied by the official registration form, or a
photocopy of it. The registration forms, rules, and list of categories
will be in the Spring 1989 issue of Zymurgy, due to be in your mail box
March 10 - 17. You can request a copy of the rules and forms by sending
a SASE to the AHA. Multiple copies of the registration form can be requested
by calling the AHA.
The entry fee is $6.50 for AHA members, $8.50 for non-members.
This year the Homebrewer of the year will supervise the brewing of his or her
best of show recipe brew at the Boulder Brewing Company. The winners of the
four AHA club competitions (winter pale ale, spring bock, summer wheat, fall
fest) will receive the same honor. This will be done for the first time when
the fall fest winner brews his festbeer on February 4.
The AHA can be contacted at:
American Homebrewers Association
P.O. Box 287
Boulder Colorado, 80306
A couple of other things to clear up:
The Conference will be in Ft Mitchel KY to allow more homebrewers to
participate. There are a lot of homebrewers in the east and midwest,
within a 10 hour drive.
The Great American Beer Festival is scheduled for Denver on October 20 and
