Urgent Call for Judges - 2012 Indiana Brewers Cup
« on: June 28, 2012, 01:04:33 pm »
Greetings BJCP Judges.  We are putting out an Urgent call for Judges for this years Indiana Brewers Cup.

If you have already registered for this years event, our eternal gratitude and thanks.  I am including the entire list in case there is opportunity to forward to another judge or club that might be able to take advantage of judging with us this year.  We would like to have another 20 - 25 judges for this years event.  If you are still deciding please strongly consider registering now and be part of one of the great competitions. 

Remember and note the incentives of $100 stipend for judges participating in at least two sessions and traveling more than 50 miles from Indianapolis while local judges will receive a $12.50 stipend per session.  Fairground parking for judges is waived, the food is great, and the water is free.

I am including previous email content to remind or refresh all information.  Please go to the website to register and contact me at for any questions you can't find the answer.

Thanks again and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Brewers Cup!

The Indiana State Fair Brewers Cup is one of the largest competitions in
the country with approximately 1000 professional and amateur entries. BJCP
judges, professional brewers, and BJCP apprentices (including those who

professional brewers and BJCP judges. Judges who travel at least 50 miles

judges will be paid $12.50 per session. We provide meals during the judging

I was thinking of doing this one, but the wife made plans with her family. Maybe next year.
