The Pub / Re: BA letter to Peyton
« on: February 11, 2016, 11:59:20 AM »
But don't mind me, I'm getting more and more fed up with the NFL in general, and spent superbowl Sunday counting down the days to opening day.

Truck day in Boston yesterday....they are on their way!!!

Yeah the O's headed south a couple days ago.

Going to have to see if I can get tickets to an O's/Red Sox game this year to see Ortiz again before he retires.

I thought about a trip down there to see the Sox play them, but all their games in Baltimore are during the week.

I'm in Indy too Jeff...I suspect it'll be tough sledding there but after a recent STL trip I felt better about the Indy judge pool.

good luck--

Great...mine are going to St. Louis  ::)

I was mildly surprised to get 5 entries.  Wonder why interest is down.  Hopefully people have taken "send your best/get feedback elsewhere" to heart.

Good luck to everyone.
Cheers--

Did you judge last year?  Maybe you get an extra one for that.

I wonder after Friday if there are people who don't pay, will they open the slots up for others to enter additional beers?

P.S.  Are the results posted yet?  :P  Sorry...just had to do it

Thanks John and Jon.

John - Did you get my email with the screenshot?  I'm guessing that's where all the confusion was coming from. 

Now...of to pay for my entries so I can accept that Ninkaski ;)

Edited and paid up for Indy.  Nice to get to hand carry to your LHBS.   8)

Now that you paid, can you still edit them?

It looks like they shifted the shipping windows a couple days.  According to the rules in the software, entries will only be accepted 3/2/16 - 3/11/16, instead of 2/29/16 - 3/9/16 on the AHA page.

Homebrew Competitions / COTY Rules
« on: February 10, 2016, 07:14:16 AM »
So this one slipped by me this year (not hard to do mind you). 

Homebrew Club Award Points

Based on input from the AHA Governing Committee’s Competition Subcommittee, the method for awarding the NHC Homebrew Club Award is changing. Starting with the 2016 competition, only the points from medals earned in the Final Round will be tallied to determine the winning club. Tiebreaker rules for this award have also been added. Please read Part IV Judging & Awards for the details.


Under these rules, the Austin Zealots would have won last year, with the usual suspects Quaff, St. Paul, etc. in the mix.  What was nice is the Whales and the Lincoln Lagers were really close too.  Maybe this will be the solution for a while until it's the same club winning year after year.

It will be nice to not hear booing at the Banquet for a while too.

Thoughts?

Homebrew Competitions / Re: Trying to Enter Doppelbock in NHC
« on: February 10, 2016, 06:53:43 AM »
Please disregard...I just re-read the guidelines and see that I need to specify whether it is a dark or pale variant.  Never had to do this before so I'm guessing the new guidelines differentiate between the two now.

Homebrew Competitions / Trying to Enter Doppelbock in NHC
« on: February 10, 2016, 06:37:54 AM »
I'm trying to enter a Doppelbock in the software for my NHC entries, but it is asking for addition information (2015 Cat 5C - 2008 Category 9A).  It is asking for special ingredients or whether it's based on a classic style.  Yeah...Doppelbock.

I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.  The Marzen I entered didn't have this requirement and I'm guessing that would be a classic style too.

Is this a glitch, or should I just enter "Doppelbock" in the software?

Also, like other competitions that use this software, can the entries be edited after they are paid for?

Thanks and good luck to you all.

P.S. Doppelbock is spelled "Dopplebock" in the software...no big deal

The Pub / NH Primary

Not making any kind of political statements here except it is crazy in NH today.  I'm going to vote later then go home and have myself a "good job" beer :)

We expect a huge turn out in my town, since we just had a big to do with the local gov't cutting police, fire, and services causing the citizens to sue the town council (upheld by the state courts) and held a special election to restore funding to vital services.  Everyone is still in get-involved mode, which is great.

When your primary comes around, get out and vote.  But only if you want to...that too is your right.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Sam follows Guinness and goes nitro
« on: February 01, 2016, 12:36:45 PM »
The IPA is ok, the coffee stout is really good (reminds me of Left Hand).

I have no use for White Ales, nitro or otherwise.

The best part of this setup is no matter when you submit during the registration period, there is equal chance for everyone.  Sure beats the "old" days when you had to be online right when it opened and click refresh, refresh, refresh...

Good luck to all those entering.
