OK, the NHC regionals are right around the corner. Who is entering?

I am sending in :

Russian Imperial Stout
American Barleywine
Belgium Pale
Roast Chile Belgium Pale
Raspberry RIS

and maybe a Imperial IPA
Before I learned to brew I was poor, sober and lonely. Now I am just poor.

If I can get them carbed and bottled in time I'd like to send my current IPA and Hefe creations. Just looking to get some feed back on my brews.

I'm going to take feedback on the comp I just entered.

I'll probably enter the Am. Brown Ale regardless, though.

Hadn't thought of it before now, but perhaps I'll enter my Vienna Lager... I didn't particularly care for it (I think I just don't care for the style in general), but everyone else who drank it loved it. From a technical standpoint, it's definitely one of my better beers.

I just hope it isn't past it's peak! I brewed it in August of last year and have been lagering it at around 34 deg. F. ever since. It tastes good now (yes, I'm contradicting myself), but I wonder how long it will continue to taste this way.

Any thoughts?

I'll see what I have around when the time is up. I may enter if I can drop it off locally. Don't think I want to ship the beer.

Is there some official site for that?

There is a map showing all the locations for entries in this month's Zymurgy, page 22, your region would be in Philly. Can't seem to find it online.

I am thinking about submitting a few.
