I saw that one. I'm actually thinking about throwing my hat in the ring.
I know it's a bit steep for an entry fee, but it is for a good cause.
I have an IPA that is coming up to carb right now, assuming I didn't screw anything up it should still be drinking great come May...
Or I could do something else. I have a recipe for a stout in the pipeline, and a couple other things.
Oh, yeah, I saw a post on facebook and asked, they would be able to work with bombers as well, didn't ask if they still need 3 or would an equivalent amount ounce-wise work.

good idea. I'm on the fence right now with that high entry fee. the grand prize is pretty cool though, getting them to brew and serve your beer.
