Seattle NHC
« on: January 20, 2014, 11:47:53 PM »
Can someone in the know fill me in on how it works? I'd like to go steward this year. Calendar shows Friday 4/4. Is that it, or does it last into Saturday? Cost etc would be helpful. A run down on what to expect would be awesome

Like last year there will be a session on Friday night as well as Saturday over at Pyramid.  When competition registration opens up you should be able to register to judge/steward at any or all of the sessions. 

Usually meals are provided, I don't remember if we had dinner on Friday night last year but there was breakfast and lunch on Saturday.

I live in Seattle, so I haven't the need to stay in a local hotel. But this is directly across the street from the Pyramid Brewery and about 3 blocks from the Elysian. Schooner Exact is also about a mile south from here as well.

Hi Jim,

Unfortunately when registering a competition with the BJCP, you can only enter one date for the entry deadline and one date for the competition date, so all of the AHA National Homebrew Competitions start on a Friday and continue into the weekend.  Hopefully the competitions can complete it in one weekend; if not, judging will continue until it is all completed.

Cheers,
Janis
