2015 Royal Brewer competition

I am so sorry, everyone, I thought I’d published this back in March. I didn’t remember I’d meant to read it through one more time. Raven’s Cove had done a bang-up job organizing this KASF.

Many K-12 schools and some churches don’t even allow…

Roundtables

A roundtable is an opportunity for brewers to bring beverages they’ve made, talk about the brewing process, and receive feedback and honest evaluation from their peers. They tend to be informal, friendly events, and it’s fun to see what other brewers are working on. Tact, thoughtfulness, and expertise are on deck at a roundtable –…

Atlantia Arts and Sciences judging

This is a whole different ball of wax from Guild judging.  For one thing, the judges are likely to be historically very knowledgeable, but not brewers.  You really have to explain yourself to accommodate the different expertise. You can find the most updated version of the A&S judging form for brewing here: Atlantia A&S Forms.   Our…
