6th Annual Beehive Brew-Off

It's time to start thinking about what beers your going to enter into the 6th Annual Beehive Brew-Off. This year's competition will take a little more thought than previous years due to the fact that the BJCP Style Guidelines have had their first update since 2008.  

Many new styles have been added, and some existing styles have been divided into multiple categories or simply renamed. The groupings of styles into categories has a new philosophy that groups styles with similar judging characteristics rather than a common heritage or family name. Please look over the the new guidelines here. Meads and Ciders have been updated as well.

Entries for the Beehive Brew-off will be accepted July 27 to August 2. Deadline is Sunday, August 2 at 5:00 p.m. Same rules as previous years. To compete, you must submit (3) 12 oz. BROWN, de-labled, unmarked capped bottles with your entry form attached with a RUBBERBAND only. Labels attached with tape may be disqualified. Entries are $5 per/entry. You will only be permitted to enter a subcategory once. Winners will be announced Sunday, August 9 at 5:30 p.m. at The Bayou. All entries will be dropped off at The Beer Nut during normal business hours. Qualified Judges should email Jamie@beernut.com to be placed. This event is not a festival and judging is not open for public view. 

Cheers!
