Well... the Westy was opened for ligit reasons... it's not a bottle you want to open at 2:00AM after you've had everything else and we didn't want to open it after being at the jamboree all day Saturday.... the problem was the Westy opened the flood gates for everything else and next thing you know there were top notch bottles flyin' outta everywhere.

Yeah, I'm with ya on getting more entries in but at the same time, why don't we do that more often for "regular" competitions as a club? Yeah this one is pretty cheap but on the flip side, it's not judged by real judges. I would rather have one of my beers win in another competition than that one.

Enter as a club or just enter more competitions?

To enter as a club it needs to be a group brew.

Winning at that competition tells you that your beer stood out amongst the crowd. I dont know if I would have sent that Baltic Porter to other competitions had it not won at the jamboree. There are enough brewers and even judges sitting at the tables giving advice feedback to people that might need help. I know that from judging the first few years I went.

The NEHBC is coming up in October, a very well run competiton.
Had my swag the week after the competition and scoresheets the following Monday.
http://www.bfd.org/NERHBC/

I have at least 4 beers going (Kolsch, that Wit from the Jamboree, DAHKNESS IPA and a Marzen)
Making a Dunkelweizen Sunday that should be done AND fresh (key for a hefe) if it is thats going too.

We have a WARRIOR in our club. Guy was crab walking two nights in a row to his tent and then rises from the ashes hours later to start popping corks on double digit ABV beers with whoever was left at the campfire.

We have a quiet one that is a laugh riot once he gets a few in his system. Party on dude, party on.

I told all of you to pace yourself Friday night, good job listening........ at least only one of you puked.

Dropping the meatballs = EPIC FAIL!

Most beers on tap at the beer garden
SSBC bishes!
10 including one on the beer engine

Be there or be square in 2010
Damn, I'm really kicking myself for not being able to go to this. I talked to the owner of Fermentation station about a month or two ago about this event, and I was on the e-mail list but couldn't make it.

I'd love to situate this puppy for next year. See if we can get a big crowd to go. The hope is I will be living in MA or NH by that time, so I should be able to go. No pictures of the event?

Huh... that's funny... I don't think a single one of us had a camera... how the hell did we manage that?

.... although... that was probably a smart move.

Weekend after Labor Day weekend, book it now.

I took two pictures with my camera phone, too busy pouring for the masses while CB milked his hangover

Oh no, your breakfast man just like I am smoked meats man

FO LIFE brotha dahkness, you are the breakfast man.
We're thinking over easy eggs on sausage hash with french toast for 2010

Sunday breakfast is a no-no because hanging around Sunday AM is a no-no.
No showers and hit the road.
Reason, 9 times out of ten there is a Patriots game that Sunday

Besides, you wouldnt have been in great shape one morning anyway.

Damn, sounds like a good time, bros. Can't wait until life settles down a little bit more and I can start hitting events like this again; been far too long since I've done drunken-camping.
