Default 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.

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.

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.
