Kinda wondering if you actually did read all 20 pages of this thread
Again, if you want the rules changed then write a letter to the Governing Committee or the Competition Committee. Few members on those boards are going to read this forum and with over 300 posts even the ones that do aren't going to remember every detail.
Why is everyone so butt hurt over some booing?
Does no one here watch sports? Do winners not get booed all the time? It's par for the course, it is to be expected. I see the BN club like the Yankees; keep on booing and they will just keep on winning.
That will at least do the trick. This thread is a buzzkill.
I thought this thread was remarkably level-headed and insightful, and I hope the AHA at least considers some of the ideas proposed here.
I have not, but I haven't compared it to one made with pale malt instead of Pils, either. I'm sure they would all be good beers, but that 1007 character is something I look for in my alts. It's merely a flavor preference on my part.
If you do that comparison, I think you'll find that 1007 character is pretty much identical to 1056 character. I use them interchangeably in IPA, APA, etc. I've also compared pale and pils malts and found virtually no difference in alt. I've also won comps with alts made with pale malt and 1056. Try it before you decide. All that said, I generally make alts with pils and 1007, but more for tradition than flavor.
This thread coupled with the audio of the award is about the saddest thing going on in brewing.
So you haven't had a Bud Light Strawberry Lime-a-Rita?
Yeah, every time we've had multiple winners there's been grumbling starting at year 2.
Face it, repeats are a common occurrence with most of the years of this award - the award was created in 1985 - 1986-1995 it went to the Sonoma Beerocrats, 2001-2006 QUAFF, 2007-2009 St. Paul, 2011-2015 TBN. So out of 30 years of the award 24 times it's gone to a repeating club that's on a long streak.
I was sitting with QUAF(I am not a member of any club). I did not hear any booing from their section. Not much cheering. But no booing for club of the year. Loud cheering for every other medal and award.
How much booing did the rest of you in attendance hear? I didn't hear a lot; less than some of the previous 4 years. I saw some eyerolls; probably did it myself. I heard some comments. Booing? Sounded like a handful.
Send me a forum message, I'm on the GC, but not on the competition committee.
Regardless of rules or what Justin says, I doubt I'll write BN Army as my club anymore. It was fun, its not anymore.
