I know this is a bit of a repeat post, but I want to make sure to get the word out. If you’re interested in getting some feedback on some of your beers, a homebrewing competition is the best place to get it. Lucky for you there is a local competition coming up soon.

The Happy Holiday Homebrew Competition is the St. Louis Brews annual homebrew competition. It is a fully sanctioned AHA and BJCP event. This year it will be held on December 8, 2007.

The location of the competition & banquet is the Annunciation Church in Webster Groves, located at 12 West Glendale Road, just South of Hwy. 44 on Elm Avenue. Here is a link to a map. We are proud to be the final qualifying event for the Tenth Annual Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing.

2 bottles per entry
Fee is $6.00 per entry

Please register on the web with a valid email address. The registration page will have all the details of where to send the entries. Local dropoff will be at the local homebrew shops.

Scoresheets will be scanned and emailed back to the brewer by the next day. Currently this is the only competition that I know that scans and emails scoresheets for quick feedback to the brewer.

At this point I believe I’m entering a Belgian Wit, Robust Porter, Vanilla Robust Porter and a Scottish 80. With the exception of the Belgian Wit, these are all brand new styles for me to brew. This is a perfect opportunity to see how close I came to the style.
