I brewed a barleywine back in like Apr that I oaked and it is starting to taste really good. Theres a local competition in a couple weeks that I will probably enter and I'm trying to decide how to enter my beer. Should I enter it in the barleywine section, the wood aged beers sections, or both? Obviously entering it in the wood aged would be the best stylisticly I think, but both sections would give me more chances to do well. But I don't really want to waste four bottles of it on the barleywine category if they are just gonna say it tastes oakey. What do you guys think?
