Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: 10 Barrel Joe IPA

I bought a six today. They got warm on the way home. Not sure who likes warm beer, what a rip off. But I'll try another after the chill just to be fair.

This sounds like a fun one -  I'm going to try to go if I can.

That reminds me that we used to have a "comp" up in the Seattle area called Homebrewfair.  It was very different from most compeittions.  The judges would be handed an entry and they'd judge it while the entrant sat in the other room. After the judges judged the beer, the entrant would come in and they'd all go over the beer and the sheets together.  It was a great learning experience for both the judges and the entrants.

I think I might talk to a few folks to resurrect this.

That sounds like a really cool format, Steve.  You should definitely come check out the Fall Classic!
We actually met last spring at the Cascade Cup, I got to judge with you and a young protégé.
Good to see you around here!

Steve

Yes, Steve, I remember it well.  It was at PostDoc -- Tom Schmidlin's new brewery.
It was great judging with you.  Hope to see you there in Portland.

You planning on going to the PNWHC in Vancouver, WA in the spring?
I just registered to give a couple judging related talks.  We'll see if they get accepted.  Should be fun, like a mini-NHC.
More on PNWHC ?

This is going to sound dumb, but if they are on Craigslist, how do I verify they are legit?
Just guessing... If they show up, you'd find out at the event if they are real.

Yup. Gose labeled BW, and either on wrong tap or the help figured Kölsch is a nickname for mislabeled sour beer

Hey that would be cool. I hope we see you in Portland

Or maybe it was a Gose?

That would explain it completely, they pulled the wrong tap.
With that theory, maybe it wasn't a tap at all, or even a beer...

OP, was the beer kinda like a slurpee with salt around the rim of the glass?

$12 and maybe benefits is about as good as it gets for an entry-level brewing job, *and* you get to work with Denny?!
Most would pay $12 an hour to brew with Denny

Signed up to judge, signed up wife to steward. Suggestions for a clean hotel close by? Better yet, a place to park an RV?

You ever wonder how they come up with all this data? Most brewers finish between 2 and 5? Really? Why do they need to know this about us?

You ever wonder how they come up with all this data? Or are they just taking a hunch and stating it as fact?

A pump is about the same cost as an ER copay
