The Master Championships of Amateur Brewing (MCAB)

#4 Post by cyburai » Thu Feb 07, 2008 10:30 am

The Master Championships of Amateur Brewing (MCAB)
(www.masterhomebrewer.org) finally returns to its birthplace in Houston.
MCAB I was held in Houston in 1999 as an alternative championship competition. The original MCAB was organized by Foam Ranger and regular Brewing Techniques contributor Louis Bonham. Since then, MCAB has traveled around the country using large regional competitions as
"qualifiers". www.masterhomebrewer.org/qualifying-events Dixie Cup and the Bluebonnet Brew-off have been qualifiers since its inception. In the last few years, the popularity of MCAB has dwindled but has since has been rejuvenated by Curt Stock (a regular attendee at Dixie Cup) of the St. Paul Homebrewers of St. Paul, Minnesota. This year he has allowed us the honor to hold the tenth annual MCAB in Houston. Please honor this once-in-a-decade event with your attendance.

In honor of the original intent of MCAB, the attendance to the event is free but should be limited to current active members of homebrew clubs or active independent homebrewers. There is an entry fee for those that have qualifying entries which is detailed at the MCAB X website. The event is scheduled for February 8-9 with all events occurring at Saint Arnolds (see detailed schedule below)
www.saintarnold.com . In addition to judging there will be educational sessions, social events, raffle, and a to-be-announced speaker. Beer will be provided at all sessions. To honor the
restrictions of Saint Arnolds, no outside beer will be allowed to be brought into the brewery.

Friday, February 8th
5 PM BJCP CEP Educational Class ? FlavorActiv Beer Flaws
6 PM Judging (back room)
8 PM Judge and Steward Reception (back room)

Saturday, February 9th
9 AM Judging
12 PM Conclude judging ? lunch for judges provided
1 PM Saint Arnolds Tour
1 PM Best of Show judging
5 PM BJCP CEP Educational Class ? Subtle Differences in Beer Styles
6 PM Speaker with Tasting
7:30 PM Raffle
8 PM Results Posted (winners in attendance announced)

If you plan to travel from out of town, please let me know ASAP. Local
hotels can be recommended.

Most categories are still available for adoption, so if you plan on
judging and have a favorite, please let me know and I'll try to "save"
that style for you.

Please donate your judging time and skills generously.

Northeast-Boston Region Longshot Competition

#5 Post by cyburai » Thu Feb 07, 2008 10:31 am

Northeast-Boston Region Longshot Competition

Greetings,
I am in the early stages of planning the Northeast - Boston region of the Longshot competition. My goal is to have a staff of 140 with at least 45 BJCP judges another 45 experienced/apprentice judges, 45 stewards, and at least 5 more to handle various staff positions. This is a massive homebrew contest, so I need lots of help, if you could forward this message to the members of your home brew club, or others you might know who are qualified and interested in helping, I would appreciate the help.

The Longshot competition will be a BJCP registered event, and it will be taking pace in Boston on one of the following weekends: 5/17, 5/31 or 6/7, and meals and one night hotel to be provided by Boston Beer Co. Still working out the logistics, but please register at: http://www.nhbrewers.com/LongShot/registration.php if you can help.

As I hope everyone is aware, Boston Beer Co. does tons to support the home brewing community. I can tell you from first hand experience that Boston Beer Co. does a fantastic job of taking care of the judges and stewards, as I recently organized the Patriot Homebrew Competition, which was a competition that was held at the Gillette stadium (you know where the New England Patriots play).

Good Luck! -Ron (ron@wort.org)

Summary:
It is with great pleasure that The Boston Wort Processors present the Thirteenth Annual Boston Homebrew Competition, sponsored by the Allagash Brewing Company. This year's competition follows in the fine tradition of brewing and judging that has been proven at our previous competitions. This competition attracts entries from many of the best brewers not only in New England but across the country and is judged by many of the founding members of the Beer Judge Certification Program. We look forward to your participation this year!

This is a BJCP Registered/Sanctioned event and we will be judging all 28 BJCP 2004 Styles for this competition! Also, as has been the case since its founding, this year's contest again will be part of the New England Homebrewer of the Year series (http://www.wort.org/NEHBOTY/nehboty.html) and as in past years, will serve as the Northeast Region Qualifying Event for the Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing!

Check out the MCAB website (http://www.hbd.org/mcab) for more details. New information on MCAB, and info on the finals for previous MCAB's are available at this site.

We are using the 2004 BJCP style guidelines. Please refer to http://www.bjcp.org/stylecenter.html to check the latest style descriptions and numbers. A link to the BJCP Styles can be accessed from our web site for reference.

We are accepting entries in all Beer categories as well as Ciders and Meads. Ciders and Meads will not be included in the Best of Show flight, but they will count toward the New England Cider Maker of the Year and New England Mead Maker of the Year competition series.

The competition culminates in a two-day extravaganza during which the competitors showcase their products to nearly 10,000 eager participants and the winners take full advantage of their well-earned bragging rights!

In keeping with the theme of the World Expo of Beer, Homebrew at the W.E.B is open to homebrewers from anywhere within the United States, Canada or abroad and we are accepting entrees in BJCP categories 1 through 23.

2008 Puget Sound Pro-Am Competition

You've read about the Puget Sound Pro-Am in the Jan/Feb edition of Zymurgy. Now is your chance to start brewing for the 2008 competition for a shot at GABF gold! The Puget Sound Pro-Am is your best shot with OVER 10 breweries picking their favorite award winning beers from this competition to produce and send to the Great American Beer Festival's Pro-Am Competition.

This is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition aimed at providing award winning homebrew recipes to be brewed by Puget Sound breweries with the goal of capturing a medal from the Great American Beer Festival's Pro-Am Competition. The Puget Sound Pro-Am is unique in that it will have at least TEN breweries (Big Horn/Ram (2), Rogue, Elysian, Diamond Knot, Rock Bottom (2), Elliot Bay, Big Time, and two or three more that will be announced in a few days) selecting their favorite homebrew beers from the best of show round to scale up and brew on their systems. Winning beers of AHA members may be sent on to the GABF for a shot at national glory! Not from the Puget Sound area? Having your beer brewed by one of our local breweries might make it worth taking a vacation out to Seattle (I promise you, the summers out here are as fantastic as the beers). Non-AHA members can still enter the competition and win other awards and prizes (the Powerhouse Brewery will not be submitting to the GABF and will be free to pick any entry).

Start dreaming and brewing up your entries today! The brewers will not just be looking for stylistically flawless beers, they will be looking for damn tasty beers. This is a perfect shot for that hybrid beer you make.

Check the competition website at http://www.bewbc.org/pro-am for the latest details including participating breweries, desired styles, contest rules, and links to online registration. Entries (three 10-12 oz brown bottles) are due May 28th with an entry fee of $6 per beer submitted (several drop-off locations accepting entries beginning in May). Judging will be held on May 31st at Larry's Brewing Supply in Kent (if you are interested in judging, stewarding, or helping with event execution, contact Mark Emiley at markemiley@earthlink.net or register online). Winners will be selected in the weeks following. Check the website frequently for updates on participating breweries and contest details as the competition grows. If you are receiving Tech Talk, you already have met the AHA membership requirement for having your beer sent to the GABF so get your entries ready!

Invite your friends to join the AHA and submit beers as well (all beers will be judged and ranked regardless of AHA membership). Good luck, and may your wildest brewing dreams come true!
