Here is some information about the upcoming FOSSILS Porter Competition
taking place November 14, 2009. Judging will start at 2:00 PM.
The rules are simple:
Two 12 ounce unmarked long neck bottles (stay away from embossed bottles
and scrape the label off), for each entry. Multiple entries from the same brewer
are acceptable. Please use rubber bands to attach bottle labels (see form below).
The bottle caps must be plain or blacked out. We will be following the 2008 BJCP
Guidelines for Porter.
The beer must be one of the following: 12A Brown Porter, 12B Robust Porter,
12C Baltic Porter or Specialty 23 (Porter only).
All entries must be turned in to me on or before Nov. 12, 2009. There is no fee
for entering this competition.
I (Ed Tash) will be at RichO's on the 12th to collect entries. Entries may be sent
to RichO's (see address below), but they must be received by Nov. 12th. If you
have a conflict and are unable to get your entry to me on time, contact Ed Tash
We'll try to work it out.
If you are not planning on attending the FOSSILS Meeting to be held the night of
the judging, please include a self addressed stamped envelope with your entry.
This will allow your score sheets to be delivered sooner. If you would like to
judge please let me know. This is a BJCP sanctioned competition judges will
receive one judging point.
As started in 2008, the brewer whose beer that travels the farthest to the
competition will receive a FOSSILS membership for one year. Please use
