Beer Style Question
Fella’s
I’ve brewed a beer based on an neipa recipe & used a German lager yeast, but I’m confused as to which category to enter it into. I guess you’d call it an neipl.
It has the hoppy aroma of an ipa, yet the smooth almost malty flavour of a Bavarian lager.

Any suggestions?

Hi Uyllii, were both of those (####.1 and ####.1) numbers identical, and were they separate beer styles?
The bottle labels will give you 2 identical ID numbers for bottle 1 and bottle 2 of your entry.
Just want to clarify before going further
Hey bcavan, they were different styles, exact same number on all 4 bottle labels.

However, someone has fixed the issue on your website. I now have distinct bottle labels for both entries. I will re-print the labels today as I haven't dropped off the bottles yet.

OK, have booked a room at the local pub and sent off my Volunteering details. Look forward to seeing old drinking buddies and making new ones. See you there.

Wow, I'll be there as a member of HUB. We'll need nametags to identify our AHB monikers if we are to know who we are talking to.

Should there have been an option to say what the base style of the beer is in the brett beer category? I've already sent my beers off but in previous comps this has been asked.

Hi,

I've just submitted 5 beers for entry. I've ended up with 2 entries ending in .4, that is, they have the same entry number.

I have:
1 x .1
1 x .2
2 x .4
1 .5

.3 seems to be missing... will this be a problem?

Hi Guys,

Keen to attend this event - is there much for spectators to do/ are there stalls etc? (will be seeing you nonetheless, but may bring the missus along)

Any insight would be brill.

Hi

No stalls (that I’m aware of). There will be activity of stewards marshalling beers, serving beers, tasting the beer if volume allows, judges evaluating beers, making notes and comments, scoring, scores scoresheets being recorded and sums being checked.

In my experience it is interesting to see but more so when you are directly involved. Notwithstanding the above it is interesting to see if you’ve never seen a comp before and there will be a fair bit of activity due to the sheer number of beers and people involved.

Cheers.

Can't find it anywhere. What time do the sessions start? Has anything been done to facilitate food for lunch?

I originally signed up to steward Sunday arvo, but should be good for the whole day now. Should I register again, or just rock up at 8:30 and let someone know?

There's usually a post indicating that scores have been published.

It's run entirely by volunteers so give it a little while.
