Malt Presents: The Blue Ridge Brew Off Homebrew Competition
When: September 8, 2012
12 Old Charlotte Hwy
Welcome to the Blue Ridge Brew Off:
MALT’s Blue Ridge Brew Off has proven to be one of the most fun and largest competitions in the region. For the last three years we averaged nearly 500 entries per year. We are honored to be a qualifying event for the prestigious North American Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing (MCAB). The BRBO is a qualifying event for the Carolina (CBoY) regional honors: brewer of the year, master brewer of the year, club of the year, and mead maker of the year. An award will be given in memory of, one of our esteemed members, Dr. George Fix for the highest scoring entry from a homebrewer who has been brewing for one year or less. The Blue Ridge Brew Off is sanctioned by the BJCP. We will have both beer and mead/cider Best of Show judging. The Blue Ridge Brew Off will use the 2008 BJCP style guidelines, BJCP Style Guidelines 2008 . Entrants are limited to one entry per sub category. MALT reserves the right to combine style categories for judging and awards. All of the subcategories of each category will be judged only with other subcategories of the same category. Categories will not be split among flights.
Quality judging is the primary goal of the Blue Ridge Brew Off. We make every effort to ensure that each entrant receives the best possible feedback for their entries. We need volunteers to step forward to judge and steward to make this happen. September is a great time to visit Asheville! Upon request we’ll try to house as many out-of-town guests as possible. Breakfast, snacks, and lunch will be provided by MALT. Judges and stewards should use the same convenient on-line system as the entrants. No paper work is necessary. When your on-line information is received, you’ll be contacted by the appropriate coordinator. Judges and stewards may contact an individual member of our production team listed at the bottom of this page to discuss particulars. All entries and payment in full via PayPal must be received by the date shown below. This deadline applies to every entrant, without exceptions. Late deliveries will not be returned. This procedure will allow MALT to conclude the competition in one day and better assure quality control.
