I went ahead and entered. I think I can get one batch brewed and bottled by the entry time for judging and have a second batch ready by the time of the festival. Look for Zreet St. Brewing!

I am wanting to join this, because it sounds like fun...I just want to know how this protects us a homebrewer.
I've wondered this as well. My assumption is that since this the 2nd or 3rd year and TABC hasn't shut it down, there must be something in the code allowing it.

I kinda don't want to show up and then run out of beer well before everyone else does for the festival.
I'm entering with one beer, although I might try to get a second together. Space is my issue as well.

Not sure why it posted twice, but there it is.. I'm still going to speak with Major about it though.

Whats the protocol on serving different beers at the festival? I am entering my only beer in the stout category but I want to serve variations of it at the festival to have a variety. Or can you only serve what you enter in for judging?

If the past is any indication to this year's event, you just show up, set up at your table, and serve away. We, as a club, have gone in with 15 taps-a-blazin', regardless of entries. The stuff you put on tap will basically potentially help you with the "People's Choice" vote, as ticket holders are given a marble upon entry, and you have a jar for their marbles.
