BABBLE Brew-Off 2011
 
Is anyone planning on entering the BABBLE Brew-Off 2011?

I have never entered any competitions before, but since this one is local to me and I can just drop off my entry at the LHBS, I think I'm going to submit a few entries. Probably will enter my Cranberry Dry Irish Stout and maybe my IPA if I get it carbed up in time.

I may send a few. Definitely entering DMC later, as Illinois comps go.

I'm def thinking about it. I have a couple of beers in line that might do ok. Nothing so far that amazes myself. A wit that seems a bit dry, but only just got in the keg. Mayb ethe carb will straighten it out. And an Oktoberfest that needs 3 more weeks to lager before kegging.

I have exactly two 22 ouncers left of my Squash (pumpkin) Ale which was an awesome beer. Maybe I'll enter those as well.

I had some Cyser sitting around, so I entered it. Normally they have a good turn out for entries, and since it's local it's easy if you have some sitting around.

those 22 ouncer's will be disallowed. They need to be 12oz bottles.

According to their rules, they want 10 oz bottles or larger....22oz > 10oz....I think you would be fine to enter the bombers. May want to contact the organizers just to be sure before you enter them.

I think I had entered a few bombers in the past, and I didn't lose any points but they did make a note of it on one of the score sheets.

A note probably thanking you for the extra brew. :D

I entered a Spiced Ale and my Raspberry Melomel.

Just stopped by perfect brewing supply tonight and dropped off my entries. Squash Ale, Cranberry Stout and Vanilla Bourbon Porter. We'll see how I do, I'm just interested in the feedback. Billy said he was holding around 100 entries at the store.
