The Wheatsheaf are on board this Summer, with a theme for the competition!
BJCP Beer Type 7B: California Common (or Steam Beer)
Jade (Wheatsheaf Publican) and assistant Laura (former Stone Brewing brewer) will be helping to judge this category and it will be judged strictly inline with the BJCP Guidelines. The winner of the California Common category will be brewing with Jade on the Wheaty Brewing Corps rig later in the year.
Top 3 placing SABC members are eligible for points towards the prestigious SABC Brewer of the Year.
Dates for this competition are:
Judging: 21st March at the Wheaty.
Entries: must be received by Wed 18th March (coincides with March SABC monthly meeting)
Entry fees will be $4 for first beer entered and $2 for each subsequent entry. To be eligible for the Wheaty Brewing Corps prize, you must be an SABC member.
As a bonus, the current BJCP group are keen to get some practice in and have will judge an ‘other’ category to find the best of the rest. Just be sure to nominate which BJCP category the beer should be judged against. No SABC Brewer of the Year points apply to this category due to it’s late inclusion.
