Brew Slam 2015
Register at: http://www.gtabrews.ca/brewslam/register
We are nearly five weeks away from our first open-entry BJCP sanctioned homebrew competition! There's still plenty of time to brew and submit entries if you haven't already, the deadline to submit is September 25th. We have three drop off locations across the city: Toronto Brewing, Noble Hop and Brew North. Any and every homebrewer is welcome to enter, the more local entrants we have the more local winners we'll have! Check out the website for full entry details:http://www.gtabrews.ca/brewslam/entry
The competition is featured on the Canadian Brewer of the Year Circuit (http://www.breweroftheyear.com/
). Sponsorship and prizes are rolling in and we have some very exciting pro-am opportunities for prize winners.Judges:
We're recruiting BJCP judges and stewards via the same registration link above. If you're a BJCP judge (prospective or higher), we'd be delighted to have you. Judging will occur on Friday October 2nd (6.30pm) and Saturday October 3rd (10.00am), 2015 at Amsterdam Brewery (Leaside). Rack up those BJCP points!Stewards:
A massive part of this competition will be having an army of dedicated stewards. Far more than just pouring beer, you'll get to learn from experienced judges and sit in on judging rounds and hear the discussion. You'll also accumulate BJCP points if you aspire to take the exam and move up the ranks. Even if you don't enter and just want to get a flavor of what happens at beer competitions, your help would be appreciated. No prior experience required!
Lastly, we'll be having a pop-up homebrew bar following the competition to act as an award ceremony and we'll be recruiting homebrewers shortly. Stay tuned to our facebook group for details!
