Hey Everyone, it's John with your AHA. How're we all doing?
This will surely cause some debate, but I'm curious to know.
I'm looking to gather some testimony and feedback on what everyone's doing in a year where so many of us have time to brew but many competitions have either been canceled or postponed until further notice.
I found this thread which sparked my interest in bringing up some ideas again: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=25104.0
If competitions in your area are canceled or postponed until sometime next year, would you pay to have your beer evaluated by a panel of judges and get full written feedback, just not in a competition?
I'd imagine the judging panel would need to comprise of at least 3 judges with a ranking of Grand Master or above. Open to discussion.
What if you had to ship the beer instead of dropping it off somewhere locally? Point noted that there are already inherent worries about shipping that plague this idea but interested to hear people's thoughts.
Would you use such a program?
Be well, take good care of yourself, and thank you
