If this comment was on a blind competition scoresheet, then that Beer Judge is a lot more suspect than your plastic.

I have to be honest somethings gotta change with these BJCP 2015 guidelines if this is going to continually happen.
I'd like to see Ninkasi made beer-only next year. Then have separate entry limit for mead and cider.
*edited to be less of a magnanimous prick.
They need to change the name of the award then. The Hymn to Ninkasi clearly mentions honey.
78 Specialty in Denver last night. Minibos was quite a lot of work by itself; so much variety and Specialty info it becomes like a BOS
Wichita is more than twice that population and isn't supporting any stores "very well"That's not a small town, the population is around 150, 000.It would be interesting to see a breakdown. Ingredients for a 5 gallon batch (gross income to the store) and how many you would need to sell per month to break even. I'm not bored enough to do the math but I have a feeling that for most small town owner operated LHBSs its just a hobby that almost pays for itself, and the exit plan is to pocket a little when its time to sell out.
Define what you think of as a "small town". I consider Eugene a small town, but we have 2 shops doing very well.
