Name's Paul. I'm a volunteer working for the Beau's Oktoberfest Homebrew Competition, presented by the Members of Barleyment (Ottawa Homebrew Club)
3rd Annual Members of Barleyment & Beau’s Oktoberfest Annual Homebrew Competition - 2015: Get your brews ready!
The Members of Barleyment (MoB) are pleased to announce the 2015 edition of the annual MoB & Beau’s Oktoberfest Homebrewing Competition.
The grand prize winner of the BJCP competition will have the honour of brewing their winning recipe at Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company on a commercial level. The winner of the People’s Choice competition will also be invited to brew their recipe on the “pilot batch” system at Beau’s, and will have their beer sold at Beau’s brewery retail store (as well as receive some bottles of their collaborative brew). Additional prizes (to be announced) will be offered up by other breweries and homebrew suppliers. Stay tuned for further prize details! Details for the competition are developing on the daily on our website: http://comp.barleyment.ca/.
As with last year, we plan to have our competition included in the Brewer of the Year (http://www.breweroftheyear.com/) competition!
This event is 2 competitions in 1!
The first is a BJCP-sanctioned competition:
● All beer style categories in the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines will be accepted (Categories 1-34, excluding 34A).
● Each brewer can submit a maximum of one entry per subcategory.
The second is a People's Choice competition:
● Attendees of Beau’s Oktoberfest 2015 will take part in judging your homebrew!
● The People’s Choice Judging promotes beer literacy by getting craft beer fans to judge competition-worthy homebrew and consult the BJCP guidelines.
● Details of People’s Choice entries will be provided in a later announcement.
Entry Deadline is Saturday, September 5, 2015.
Stay tuned! More details to follow.
