We have gotten some fantastic sponsors from around the country. Prizes include gift certificates for homebrew supplies, commercial artisan cider and mead, hand-blown useable art glass mazer for Best Mead and tankard for Best Cider.

The WA Mead and Cider cup is going to be a fantastic competition. It recognizes the growth in home made mead and cider making in recent years and gives a place to compete these beverages clear of the distraction of other beverages. We also hope to highlight the fact that WA State is known for the production of apples. Being known for our apples, it should naturally reason that we become known for our ciders. We are hoping to build up the interest and competition level in meads and ciders to a level where the Northwest becomes a recognized source of knowledge and excellence.

BrewChops is working hard to get good sponsorship and some great prizes for this event. There should be some really nice custom made prizes. We really encourage all mead and cider makers to put your best product forward and help make this competition a success. Help put WA mead and cider on the radar. There is still time to put a good cider together for this year.

Hope to see you there.

We ended up with 134 entries for this competition with quite a few coming in from out of state. The entries are all sorted and waiting for judging next weekend.

It will be exiting to see and taste all the different interpretations of the meads and ciders that came in. The brewing community is getting quite creative on these in some of the specialty categories.

Thanx to all who entered and helped make this competition a success. Best of luck on your entries.

Cheers
