It's coming early this year. We've gotten our competition act together much sooner than the previous two years: the judging will take place on Saturday, April 9, with entries due March 26. We're also making plans for a branch new post-competition banquet on the following day (April 10).
Whether your a seasoned brewer, or just starting out, the competition is an excellent way to gather intelligent feedback for your homebrew. For each entry, you can expect hand-written score sheets with ratings, comments, and suggestions for improvement--including comments from at least 1 experienced beer judge.
To make entry easier, we've moved it online this year. Just stop by the competition section of the TRASH site and fill out the required brewer and bottle registration forms. Once you've filled out the forms, you can bring two bottles and a $6/bottle entry fee to any of the participating drop-off locations or ship it directly to the competition registrar.
