The 6th Annual Beehive Brew-Off

Utah's largest homebrew competition has a date! The 6th Annual Beehive Brew-Off has been scheduled for August 16-17, 2014.

Entries will be accepted August 5-10.. One entry consists of three (3) bottles. To assure the anonymity of brewer, bottles must be standardized to the current AHA competition requirements: 12 oz bottles with no paper or inked labels or distinguishing marks on the cap identifying the brewer. Be sure that you enter your beer into the proper style category. Styles accepted include all styles listed in 2008 AHA Category Descriptions. Entries become property of The Beer Nut and will not be returned.

The Beehive Brew-Off is open to all recognized beer categories. The 2008 edition of the BJCP Style Guidelines will be used to judge entries. It is the brewer's responsibility to determine the correct category/subcategory to enter their beers, and to provide additional information where required. Depending on the number of entries and category distribution, categories and subcategories may be combined or separated for judging and awards purposes. These judging table breakdowns will not be available prior to the competition and will be determined by the competition committee once all the entries have been processed. $5 per entry. Entries will be received at

The Beer Nut
1200 South State St.
Salt Lake City, Utah

We're getting this info out early so that you get your recipes dialed-in for judging.

Whew! Speaking of beer competitions, voting has finally ended in the 2014 Utah Beer Challenge! It was a pretty tough competiton - some rounds harder than others. The Sweet Sixteen round was particularly tough with such match-ups as RedRock Elephino DIPA vs Wasatch Ghostrider White IPA - Squatters Fifth Element vs Epic Elder Brett - Squatters Hop Rising DIPA vs Epic Big Bad Baptist - Uinta Sea Legs vs Squatters Outer Darkness etc.

We'll announce the champion tomorrow morning in a ceremony that is guaranteed to make you weep like a school girl in it's inadequacy.

Cheers!

I would like to enter a beer that I have recently brewed, but I have bottled it in larger bottles. Would that be OK ???
