Dear Fellow Brewers,

The Foam Rangers homebrew club of Houston, Texas, proudly present the 24th Annual Dixie Cup Homebrew Competition and Celebration. This year's theme is "Brew-a-lot: The Quest for the Holy Ale"

Join us from October 18-20, 2007, for one of the largest homebrew competitions in the world and MCAB qualifier. As speakers, we are honored to present Randy Mosher (author of Radical Brewing), Steve Grossman (of the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company), Mark Wedge (brewer at the Rahr & Sons Brewing Company, Fort Worth, Texas), and Bev Blackwood (brewer at the Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Houston, Texas). Distinguished beer writer, Fred Eckhardt, will continue his tradition of the "Fred Tasting," a tasty food and beer pairing.

On-line registration is now open. Regular entries will be accepted through September 28. Late entries will be accepted until October 5. Enter now and on-line to save. This year's special categories are "Gruit Ain't Moot" and "It's Just Beer." Information on entering, events, and hotel registrations may be found at the Dixie Cup Website or by emailing [email protected].

Enter now, and come down if you can!

Yea, next year we'll be back in the Lonestar circuit...over the past year or so, the club has been turned upside down and we're all pretty new to it...so this year's Cactus was a big learning experience!! Next year should be much bigger (entries and participants) than this year!!

Dropped off 7 entries yesterday at DeFalco's. Looks like it's going to be a fun weekend.

Do you have an agenda for Friday & Saturday?

I have never been to an event like this, nor do I have any beer to enter.

However, I would love to come and mingle with homebrewers, etc.

If I came, and didn't bring any of my own beer, what can I expect in an event like this?

Hey Ed! Do you know if they'll be e-mailing out of town winners? I have high hopes for my Schwarzbier after winning BOS at the Cactus! Or will the website be updated pretty soon afterwards (Sunday even?)? Thanks
