I have regularly wanted more beers listed in the commercial examples of the BJCP Guidelines.  It seems that 1/2 of the examples are regional beers in a lot of the categories, therefore not available unless I happen to be in that region.  I know it would be a lot of work to get more beers listed, but my guess is that there would be a lot of people willing to help.  ;)

The puppet masters are relentless in their attempts to make men into women and women into men.  I refuse to participate.

It is for this reason that I have stopped downloading issues.  Too many times I've wanted to read an issue I'd previously downloaded just to find that it is no longer there.  I haven't looked at the app in 6 months.

I have a lot of flexibility on Thursdays since it is my Friday.

And here I thought you were going to tell us Mark V. was bio-engineering morphine.

Sounds like a plan. I wonder what instrument Steve plays for the Yakima Symphony Orchestra?

I'm way too low brow for the symphony. 

In what part of town do you reside?  I'm in West Valley.  I'm always up for getting together.

So is the "other room" the champagne room? Or is this just the ladies room?

Its the group party room.  The benches are all covered in red crushed velvet.  My first thought was "Now that's a mancave!"

There were remnants of hinges on both sides of the doorway making me think there were ...  oh nevermind it can only get worse from here.

I was in Seattle last night.  I went to a friends neighborhood bar in Ballard called Olaf's.  Olaf's was built in the 70's and exemplified the tackiest of the era.  It has since changed hands and is just a nice bar with decent food and a decent beer selection.  The primary hold-over of the original owners vision of marketing excellence is the doorway into the 'other room.'

Interesting and well done!

It looks fine to me up until the dry hopping.  For a big IPA (or any IPA for that matter)  I use a minimum of 1 oz. per gallon.

I am unsure what you are asking.  It may be as simple as directing you to the BJCP guidelines (available as an app or Word/.pdf documents).  But since you referenced the BJCP it makes me think you are asking about something else.  A beer flavor wheel maybe?  There is an app called Beer Judge that I use to help with wording ideas.

Thanks for reporting.  I love this sort of experimentation.

This will be my first NHC.  Will most people be bringing homebrew, or just those that drive in?  I've flown with wine bottles and both times there were broken bottles  >:( .  So I've been thinking I wouldn't be bringing any.  Is there something I am missing?

Carrying a paper bag full of 10.5 Lbs. of Pilsner malt to the mill.  I didn't make it half way before it ripped.  No I didn't make a Garage Floor beer.  I bought more.

Does anyone believe that we will eventually reach a point where there will be specialized certification within the beer categories?

I think it would be a good idea.  We'd have more judges because it would be far easier to be excellent at 1-3 styles.  The hard part would be at the level of managing judges & competitions - but that's what we have computers for right?

I vote yes.
