It's a drive thru beer store at the corner of Easton and Jenkintown Rd in Glenside. My wife had them filled for me, you have to drop off a tank larger than 5 lbs for a bit, as they chill it down before filling. The 5 lb'ers they do on the spot.

I'm sure this will be a hot topic in the next few months. Anybody ever do War of the Worts? I've never done a competition before and looking to have my home brews judged. I think its tasty, but would really be into hearing some unbiased opinions. Winning wouldn't be too bad either lol
How crowded do entry categories get?

The spread for entries wasn't too bad. I think I may actually try to do this for February.

and that was down from the year before. Specialty is tough, because alot gets lumped in there that wouldn't make it in other categories. And IPA's, everyone has one of those...

I'm looking to get a bourbon barrel RIS that is coffee forward entered. Wasn't sure where I should get it in or if I should just enter it in multiple categories. Being my first dance in the show, not sure if that kind of thing is frowned upon or not or which category it would really belong.

no, you can enter in multiple categories, as long as it fits those categories. Two years ago, I entered a chocolate peanut butter stout in vegetable and specialty. It took first in specialty (out of 35), didn't place (but was scored well) in vegetable.

Send me your beer, I'll fill out a BJCP score sheet for you. If the beer scores over 38 it's worth entering... Though it usually takes a 40+ to place in a category...

I'm pretty jaded when it comes to competitions. It seems like a silly waste of beer to me. But that rant is for another time...

Sounds like a plan. Pm me your address and I'll get a bottle to you.
