It does make sense though. Two way tie with four golds each, except one of them only sent four and the other had one that was a 13...
I agree it's a fine tiebreaker. But this year the other will not have sent 13. Far more likely to have 4 golds each, and they each sent the max of 5 beers.

Edit: If you send 5 beers to NHC and win 4 gold medals, you're OK in my book.

we haven't heard any numbers, but from previous interest levels it feels more like we'll have three people tied with two silver medals out of the max of 3 entries...

it could still work out though, and it is what it is.  A victim of our hobby's awesomeness/growth.

I will say that I'd like to see any random selection methods avoided at all costs.  if it comes down to that, I'd give it to the person who won the biggest categories before I'd flip a coin.  I have less problem with steel cage matches.   ;D

but that's, just, like, my opinion, man!

I agree. Winning by a coin toss will take away some of the coolness. If I were the winner, I'd rather they just declare it a tie. Or at least recognize all the tied winners and use the coin toss to pick who gets the trophy, but officially call it a tie. It'll work out - in the end we're all making beer!

I see 23 largely bearded and carrying a few extra lbs homebrewers on stage tied for first place.  Janis turns around and throws the Ninkasi bouquet over her shoulder; hilarity ensues.

That would be even BETTER than a steel cage match!

I think it's cool that someone can enter 1 beer in the first round and potentially win Ninkasi as well as Homebrewer of the Year.  Maybe that should be the new goal, winning more with less

max of 4 entries isn't too bad.  feel bad for the 7% who couldn't get in though.
again, popular hobby...

good luck to the 3K+ brewers competing this year!

I wonder if those who didn't get in could be offered the chance to enter in the centers that aren't full?

That is why you put in alternate judging centers.

True. I put San Diego as first choice,  but also Sacramento,  Seattle and Denver as alternates.  Hopefully I got into one of them.

The article says that the 7% will be given a shot at abandoned registrations

http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/news/national-homebrew-competition-entry-registration-lottery/

Thanks, thought it would be on the main page. Well, now we know the demand as far as number of brewers.

Edit - clubs e-mail list is asking if anyone has been notified. None so far. Anyone?

I know 1 person so far that has received email, I also know other people from same region who did not receive it yet.    Based on my small data set I'll speculate that people with last names starting with A received their email and every hour another letter should go out.
