Dortmunder for me, and racking/lagering my Alt.

We had a similarly stupid law in Florida up until 2001. Beer could only be sold in 8, 12, 16, or 32 ounce containers (after that it was OK). So we had almost no European beers and no 22 ounce bombers.
As I understand it the law was originally enacted in the late 50's to punish Miller for not putting their new brewery in Jacksonville, building it in Georgia instead. They had 7 (or was it 7.5?) ounce bottles.
Agreed, I like bawdy humor.. I'm going to the RenFaire this week for f'sake, but I've just seen a number of crude names that aren't funny and aren't imaginative. And those just annoy me.. if you can make it funny and risque.. go fer it, but then again it seems by the field of names I've seen things like "Three Fingers Deep Tripel" or "Shocker Stout" are names some people like that just make me roll my eyes. (and those are the polite ones)
When I decided to name my brewery I went with a Information Technology is driving me crazy theme. Hence the "Slowly Losing IT Brewery" was born. I tried to give beers names that fit the theme. Here are a few (along with, hopefully witty, tag lines:
if more/better judges were available (I know, I am part of the problem, but I will work on it) we could expand the entries i would think
I had a third place beer in the regionals several years ago that won gold in the finals, so I don't like the idea of only sending the top two. Different judge, different day.....
I like this everyone-gets-an-entry stuff.
Sure there are more than 30K members, but until the last couple years it hasn't filled up, so there's plenty of history of less than 10% of the membership participating.
I like the max 5 entries per day stuff too. It won't help with the explosive growth of the competition/hobby for more than a couple years but it's a start.
And as for the GABF "members-only" stuff, that makes way too much sense; stop that crazy talk!
But how could you guarantee that trend would continue if everyone got one entry? I could see a situation where more people would enter since the entry was included with their membership.

I read his suggestion as saying members would get an option. They would still have to pay the 10$ or whatever, but they would have right of first refusal.
That's the way I read it as well.
