It’s hard now to think of any more preparations needing attention, so all I can say is thanks to all who have entered and to those who have helped make this happen! I hope to see you all at the Awards Ceremony, Sunday, 6 PM, at Great Basin on Victorian Ave., Sparks.
Northern Nevada was definitely “on the map” in the just announced Sacramento NHC First Round competition. We had 6 local brewers, brewing 9 winning entries , qualifying for the National Finals held this year in Grand Rapids, MI.
Congratulations to Jeff Current, Barry Cochran, Jason Green, Jason Hanski, and Jason Hobbs for your expertise and a job well done!
Hey, all you judges, stewards, old, new, or prospective; here’s a message from Darrell Amerine, Coordinator for the California State Fair Homebrewing Competition (p.s., I’m planning on being there):
Good Morning everyone,
Hey, did anyone out there get entered into the National Homebrewing Contest?
I entered for the first time this year, and it went pretty smooth. I entered three brews, which I’m not going to say what styles they were, because I’m going to enter the same ones into the Great Basin Brew-Off, and don’t want to show my hand.
The new system they are using seems to work really well. Did you know that the software is the same as what we use? Just beefed up for the huge size of the contest, but designed by the same person, Geoff Humphries, of BrewCompetition.com. That guy has helped a lot of us get competitions off the ground.
Anyway, feel free to comment, and let us know if you got through with any entries.
