That is pretty bad on their part. If you are going to send an email to lots of people stating why you just ripped them off, there should probably be some thought behind it. As well as a better "make it right" plan.

Now it just looks like that homebrew club gets lots of free beer.

They should be putting ground labels and shipping everything back. How did they not know about 30 "hidden" entries they had at some obscure location?

Everyone who entered the competition had to fill out an online form in order to print the labels for their beer. Therefore they had to be able to track how many entries there were by following the online registration database. they would have to be completely retarded to not know how many entries there were.

This is just a bummer all around.

To make things better, I offer to host an AHA sanctioned homebrew comptetition in it's place. Just send 3... no make it 4, homebrews to my house along with a $5 entry fee and maybe $2 for drinking I mean handling.

Please don't send any sours beers. yuck!

Wow. What a crappy situation.

That response letter is awful. That is middle-school grammar and spelling at best.

I got another email this morning asking that all participants respond whether they want their beers judged by homebrewers. I'm not even responding. Hopefully, I get a response for the AHA after the holidays. Everyone else involved in this mess should email the AHA also.

I might write him again tomorrow but I'm not ruining my Thanksgiving thinking about this nonsense any more.
