More information as well as Entry and Bottle ID forms may be found at:

This year we have added a "Follow of Twitter" button just above the where the Entry and Bottle ID forms are. It is out intention to send out one or two competition reminders and to send out quick and dirty updates prior to composing and sending out our standard e-mails. Also after the BOS winner has been notified by phone, something will be posted on Twitter in that regard. The rest of the world will need to wait until the results webpage is uploaded late the next day to find out who the winner is.

At any rate, should you have any questions or are interesting in judging contact Scott Stihler at or (907) 474-2138.

Please join me in congratulating Aaron Christ of Anchorage for winning Best of Show (and the $500 cash prize that goes with it) in this year's E.T. Barnette Homebrew Competition. The winning beer was a wonderful chocolate Doppelbock.
