Fort Wayne, that "other" city in Indiana...
June 12th is the homebrew competition judging. June 13th is the Botanical Conservatory's Brew & Q event. Admission includes tickets to sample beer from a range of regional breweries.
This is the first year that Fort Wayne's Foellinger-Friemann Botanical Conservatory is hosting a sanctioned homebrewing competition. Registration ends on May 21st. Judging is June 12th. We will have a strong BJCP judge roster. Entries are $8 for the first entry and $4 for each additional entry. The first entry includes admission to the
Conservatory's Brew & Q event on June 13th when winners will be announced and the Best of Show judging will be done as part of the activities.
While our local club, Mad Anthony Serious Homebrewers (MASH) is not officially involved beyond some brewing demonstrations, we have worked hard to improve the event and competition. The last several years, this competition was judged by radio personalities and there were no score sheets. Last year we got them to use score sheets, to add a BJCP judge in the panel and to have a way for entrants to retrieve their score sheets. This year, it's the real deal. We hope you can help us convince them that it's the right way to go.
