Starting to get the word out on the 15th Annual Domras Cup Mead Competition. Hope things are well with you and yours during this holiday season. Hard to believe we are at 15 years straight meeting on the Saturday before the Superbowl. We are planning for the biggest and best Domras ever. Please pass this on to your fellow club members.
The Savannah Brewers League will once again be sponsoring the Domras Cup Mead Competition.
Competition Date: Saturday, February 2, 2013.
Entry window: December 26, 2012 to January 23, 2013.
The cost is just $6 per entry. Any size bottle is acceptable (meads will be served blind by our experienced stewards). We know your mead is a precious thing. You can send any number of bottles you want, but we do recommend a minimum of one 750ml, two of anything smaller, and two if carbonated to ensure a fresh bottle for the BOS round. Ribbons and lots of great prizes from the Savannah Bee Company (can you say 100 lbs of regional honey!), Redstone Meadery products, and Savannah Homebrew Shop will be provided to winners.
Why join us?
We can use certified judges and mead aficionados for judging and stewarding. We have a dozen local certified mead judges, but always need help. Each volunteer will get an etched Domras wine tasting glass and look for some of our new SBL crimp-less bottle openers to be available as well. Drawings for a door prize or two will be in order. Bagels, etc. will be available before we start and snacks in between. Immediately following judging, we hold our epic post-party and oyster roast that is a time not to be missed, so if interested in helping to judge or steward, please sign up on the registration page and come join us. We generally try to finish in one round though a few folks may have to do two small rounds. BOS should start by early afternoon.
