Hey,

I'm starting a competition here in Vancouver with the help of a local association (which I'm now apart of, I suppose). Beers are due April 16th and there will be a little party during the week of May 10-16. The event will be part of the inaugural "Vancouver Craft Beer Week"

Check it out if you live up here. It won't be BJCP "Certified", but it will be based on that format with Pro Brewers as judges.

Cheers!

If you'll have any BJCP judges (and there must be some in Vancouver) you should seek BJCP sanctioning so they can get experience points. You don't have to have all BJCP judges in order to have the competition sanctioned.

Strangely enough, Vancouver has no active BJCP judges (I just checked a recent roll sheet.)

Glad to hear Van has a club going again. Did you guys see this announcement:

Maybe we can arrange some reciprocal entries.

you have to carry it across and then ship it on this side since nobody officially allows beer to be shipped otherwise.

Or ship it normally and hope it makes it through.

Yeh there's a few guys that may roll through town. Ones' in Port Coquitlam which is right next to the town I live in. Pretty close to Van.

I am probably entering the cowtown, if I get time to bottle and ship. I'm a bit overwhelmed having bitten this comp off though! (Plus job, side-company, actually brewing, etc....)

I could really use some help if you want to contact me! Shoot me a DM and maybe we can chat.

Thanks,

Adam
