Homebrew on the WEB 2012
Were gearing up for the 2012 Homebrew at the W.E.B. Homebrew Competition, and once again were going to be in need of lots of judges and stewards, as well as entries.

In less than five years this competition has grown from a 200 entry competition to one of the largest and most respected Beer Competitions in the country. Last year nearly 900 beers were judged by some of the best judges around, and this year we expect to break the 1000 mark. Thats why we need you!!

This years Homebrew at the W.E.B. (World Expo of Beers) competition judging will be held the weekend of March 2-4th 2012 at Sullivans Black Forest Brewhaus in Frankenmuth Michigan . Were looking at two flights Friday (2:00-4:00p.m. and 5:00-7:00p.m.) Two Flights Saturday (9:00a.m.-12:00p.m. and 1:00-4:00p.m.) and a morning flight Sunday followed by the award ceremony Sunday afternoon.

Were very proud to announce that the special guest speaker/judge this year will be John Palmer (How to Brew, Brewing Classic Styles, Brewing Network)
coming all the way from California!. John will be doing a presentation Saturday evening as well as judging your beer. Grand Master Level V Gordon Strong will also be judging!

Hotel discounts will be available at the Frankenmuth Motel (within walking distance) Costs are - Friday night -$69.00, Saturday night- $84.00.
As always we will provide hot meals for judges and prizes to be given away throughout the weekend.

Stipends will be available on special circumstances to judges traveling long distances to spend the weekend with us.

Not to be forgotten, we will once again be giving away the biggest baddest prizes!!!!!-------------------------
-$1000.00 Best of Show Beer prize!!!!!
-$500.00 Mead/Cider Best of Show!!!! Holy $h*% is right!!!!! tell your friends!!!
-And lots of other valuable prizes for those lucky enough to medal.
-Best of show beer and multiple other gold medal winning beers will be picked to brew at multiple breweries around the state , and possibly sent on to next years Great American Bee Festival,
more detailed information will be coming soon including drop off points and a formal call for judges.

If it's anything like last year, Phil Sullivan will be taking home his share of medals.

I couldnt make it there for the results/award ceremony. Anybody know when they are going to post the results.

IIRC, last year they were posted on the website the evening of the Monday following the judging.

Oh yeah, you can bet on a bunch of Phill Sullivan medals. That guy must brew about 6 days a week, he usually has 20+ entries in every competition. I don't think I've ever had more than 8-10 different beers on hand at any given time, and I brew pretty much every week. That guy is an absolute machine.

Patience is not my strong suit - I've checked the website probably 10 times already today hoping to see the results posted.

All times are GMT. The time now is 03:09 AM.
