Local Competition Opportunity…

Forwarded to us via Jerry Carney…. Dust off a couple of those special bottles you’ve been saving (or counter-pressure fill some from that keg you’ve got stashed away) and submit them for judging! Your beer could be the next big hit at the Manayunk Brew pub! Best beers will be brewed there and served to their customers!

Competition entry fees will be paid for by the club if you bring your brew to the meeting and everyone agrees to submit it! Take note of the applicable categories below.

Best the Brewers
Thursday March 23, 2006
Manayunk Restaurant and Brewery

The 2nd annual Best the Brewer amateur/professional homebrew competition is looking for entrants. It is a BJCP sanctioned competition. This year submit beers brewed after November 2005 in the general categories: Pale ale; IPA; Brown Ale; Porter; Stout; Wheat; and spiced/vegetal specialty. Professional brewers that have agreed to homebrew as of 1/1/2006 come from Yards, Manayunk Brewery, Flying Fish, and Iron Hill. Prizes will be awarded for the winner of each of the 7 categories. Best of Show Beers (up to 3) that are from homebrewers, not professionals, will be brewed with the homebrewer at Manayunk Brewery and served at the restaurant.

Two 12 ounce bottles should be submitted by Saturday March 16th using the appropriate AHA submission form (http://www.beertown.org/homebrewing/scp/pdf/entry_recipe_form.pdf ) accompanied by a $5 entry fee payable to Tim Ackerson. Drop-off points for the competition are Home Sweet Homebrew, Keystone Homebrew and the Manayunk Restaurant and Brewery. Entrants can also be sent to Tim Ackerson, 101 W. Nippon St., Philadelphia, PA 19119.

There will also be a beer dinner along with the awards at the Manayunk Restaurant and Brewery on Thursday March 23rd. Full details about the dinner will be posted on http://www.manayunkbrewery.com/ .

For questions e-mail Tim Ackerson at theimann@verizon.net or Chris Firey at chris@manayunkbrewery.com . Hope to see everyone at the competition and dinner.
