I'm entering a North German Pilsner for sure. Possibly a Maibock and a Classic American Pilsner too depending on how they progress.

I'll be entering a single beer again this year. Going for the "specialty" category (23) this time with a honey raisin pale made with amarillo hops...

I'll threadcrap and say that I don't see the point of paying to have other people who don't have any idea what my process is, nor what I was trying to achieve with a brew, taste my beer. I don't really care about brewing a Pale Ale that fits someone else's concept of what a Pale Ale should taste like. Instead, I use styles as a starting point based on which I keep tweaking the recipe until I come up with what *I* think is a great beer. That's all that matters to me.

Of course, for whatever reason you guys enter your beers, I wish you good luck!

I have a couple beers I wouldn't mind entering, but I'm on the fence in regards to which category to enter them under.

One is a high gravity chocolate/coffee stout, and the other is a Rye IPA.

What do you guys think?

What style would a Jamil's Evil Twin be considered as? Just curious for local. I'm not ready to go national.
