"Balls", said the Queen "if I had them I'd be King."

Seriously that is some huge BS. Unless it was advertised as a "men only" event but it does not sound that way to me. (There are women only clubs/comps here in the states.)

Wonder if her beer was a banana bread stout?

Wow.
I mean, this is 2012, right? And what is this about possibly having a segregated competition? Just plain weird.
If I were her, I'd have no qualms about making a formal complaint so that my brew could be judged with the other brews.
Hopefully, another 'brewster' won't have any problems making the complaint.

It's New Zealand. They don't have to follow American laws there.

Doesn't sound very nice but I don't know the culture or the history.

Check out the: Pink Boots Society Pink Boots Society Home They have women only comps, I am pretty sure or I have heard of them before...

Hey now, these people are on top of stuff. They have "The Shire" from LOTR and they are the only country to recognize Jedi as an official religion... Yes, they have a "Jedi Temple" there. Clearly these people are good decision makers...

Yeah, I'll go check that out.
But I don't see the point of segregating a beer competition by sex. I've never entered a competition before...do you have to say what sex you are? I really just don't see why it should matter.

I agree. I am pretty sure it is done by the Pink Boots...I could be WAY WRONG. I figured since you have a few posts you may not know about them.

Personally, if I was a brewer in that comp it would bug the #$^&@ out of not knowing if her beer would have beaten mine and if it did, I would not have been upset at all. BTW I think the odds of that comp being "men only" is about the same as me winning the Lottery...
