I wonder what it would take to get the AHA to put the names of the beers in the winners' lists.  Homebrewers are pretty creative and clever with names and I for one would enjoy seeing this.
Hi Jeffy,

Don't hold your breath for this.  That creativity has it's unprintable side to it, so we specifically don't include the brew names.

Cheers,
Janis

Hey, we're all adults, in a way.
Jeffy,
Seriously, the names wouldn't be half as funny, if that were the case.   ;)
Cheers,
Janis

Woo Hoo! it's official, I got two out of four through to finals. my 16E (1st) entry and my marzen(3rd.. but with a 41.5) are headed to grand rapids without me. Take good care of them Mr. UPS guy.

Great job Jonathan. What did your first place get? Very good score on the Märzen.

Congrats on moving on to the big dance.

surprisingly the first only had a 37.5 so a silver certficate (as they were known last year) but a 1st place out of 48 entries. the marzen was 3rd out of 18.

Sometimes it has to do with the competition on the table. The Amber Lagers probably had some really good brewers.

I am a somewhat experienced brewer but a newbie to the board and have question.  I entered 4 beers in the New York region and was under the impression that the top 3 entries in each subcategory would move on (providing the score was over 30).  However, it appears only 3 beers in each of the 28 main categories moved on. For instance, wouldn't there potentially be 9 entries in main category 14-IPA (A, B, C) move on providing there were 3 entries in each of the three categories and all entries all scored above 30?
Twenty eight 5 Gallon Batches to date:
- Belgian Double
- Belgian Quad
- IIPA - 2nd Place Ribbon
- American IPA
- Marzen - 3rd Place Ribbon
- Pre-prohibition Lager
- Trappist Pater
- Czech Pilsen
- Belgian Blonde
- Belgian Wheat
- Apple Cider

Top 3 per category. 14 is the category, a,b,c are sub-categories. Only 3 advance for any category.

OK, now I understand.  Thanks.  Don't feel quite as bad but need to look at my scoring sheets to improve.

Cheers!

I judged in Zainesville (which was the largest per the results posted thus far) and I didn't have particularly big flights or feel rushed... I realize some of the other sites may have had a less judges per entry turn out etc... but I only had a flight of 9 in Pilsners and 8 in Belgian Strong Ales.

741...Nice!
average is improving; currently if it holds we'd be at 8079 entries.  That'd be a new record, though well short of 9000.

So..... Were there simply 1000 beers that people registered to enter, and then never sent in??  That is really unfortunate if people were registering beers that took spots that others would have gladly used.  I had a lot of trouble deciding which 4 I would send it..... would have been a lot less trouble if I had 5 or 6 entries.  I am sure there were plenty of others in the same boat.

~1000 beers that were registered and paid for at $15 each.
