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.

Talk about a waste!  :o

Wasn't there a clause that if you didn't send the beers you paid for, you were locked out of the next year's comp? Or am I making that up?

I believe it was if you didn't pay for the beers you signed up to enter.

I'm not sure I have ever entered an IPA in a competition. I'm better off drinking them!

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.

Well... $14...but still that's $14000...
So long ago I forgot the price.

Ok...it's official.  I suck at brewing!  ;D

Philly was just posted online, and even though my scroresheets didn't have anything listed on them for placing, I was hoping it was a mistake (happened 2 years ago).

Looks like udubdawg can take the cider categories this year, but remember Mike...it will be a hollow victory  ;)

Just kidding of course.  Good luck in the finals!

another <700 region and another <600 region has us on pace for exactly 8000 entries.

Startlingly low cider numbers from Seattle, to me at least.  Maybe they all shipped to Denver to avoid each other?   ;)

mead numbers are low everywhere, with melomel accounting for almost half.  maybe St Paul will prop the numbers up a bit.

Heh yeah I almost entered 4 meads in Chicago, but due to the limitations and extra bottles decided to just enter the 1 mead this year.

We were very, very disappointed that we ended up with <600 entries in Seattle.
Frankly I don't understand how it happened.  I know a lot of people who would have gladly sent more in if they were allowed.

I just got my St. Paul scoresheet. My single entry did not place and according to the summary sheet there were 702 entries total in St. Paul for those counting.

Anyone get their scoresheets from Sacramento yet? I didn't win anything but I'm still anxious to see how I did!

7400 entries and 712 IPAs in the book, as we all glare at Chicago.  ;)

a lot of great brewers through to the Finals so far.  Some Ninkasi tiebreakers seem likely.  Somewhere around 150 people so far with multiple entries advancing, but haven't found anyone with more than 3.

I heard that entering an IPA disqualifies you from Ninkasi. Or did I dream that?
