Hi All,

This is the thread for the 2016 Grafton Brewing Competition.

Thanks to all those that have entered the previous years comps.

The program can be downloaded from:
http://www.graftonshow.com/pdf/Grafton-Brewing-Competition-Schedule.pdfhttp://www.graftonshow.com/pdf/Grafton-Brewing-Competition-Schedule.pdf

The entry form can be downloaded from:
http://www.graftonshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Pavilion-Entry-Brewing.pdfhttp://www.graftonshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Pavilion-Entry-Brewing.pdf

This year the comp is BJCP sanctioned, and the latest (2015) Australian Amateur Brewing Championship Style Guidelines will be used for the classes where style is specified (classes 1.1 - 18.7).

The old style classes remain, so as not to leave anyone out (classes 0.1 - 0.9). Non BJCP.

There are also some non beer classes as you will see in the programme.

The comp is looking for BJCP certified judges, as well as those who are on the BJCP path, that could be paired up. Judges last year had an enjoyable time - great fellowship, and the chance to discuss everything beer for hours uninterrupted.

Also finalising some home brew shops to forward entries. Brisbane & Newcastle areas are 'go' so far.

This is probably the most economical BJCP sanctioned competition in the world at only $2 per entry!!

More information to follow shortly.

And you can stay in a lovely old sandstone pub in the middle of town for $45 a night with ample (several) Coopers on tap as well as hobnobbing with notable locals such as Ducatiboy Stu, Matt and Shaunous to mention but four.

Great weekend guaranteed.

Now i regret not labeling these bottles...... I can't remember which is which and there are 5 or 6 different brews there! Maybe I'll just enter some random ones into the old "pale" category and hope for the best!

It's true, my pathetic attempt at facial hair confirmed that I'm incredibly jealous of his ultra manly chops :(

Stone & Wood are once again a supporter of the Grafton Brewing Competition. Their beers are familiar to all and require little introduction. Pacific Ale, Green Coast Lager, Jasper Ale, and limited releases such as Stone Beer......





.... And as we have seen at previous judging events, their brewers are passionate about beer.





30 Days until entries close!

They are indeed good judges. ( have a funny feeling they might be back this year as well )

If we get the same quality of judges as last year, I will need to take a few days off ....The after party was ...um.....well.....

I've just had a bit of a look through the comp details but can't find an address for posted entries?

I'm most probably missing something that's ridiculously obvious but thought I'd ask nonetheless.

Hi Sponge,

The address for the Grafton Show Ground Office is 149 Prince Street, Grafton NSW 2460.

However, the office is not open every day.

Therefore, the best option is to contact the chief steward beforehand, to help reduce the chance of forwarded entries going missing.

It also makes a difference as to whether this is being dropped off in person, via courier, or via Australia Post.

You are welcome to email info@graftonbrewingcompetition.com or phone the number in the programme.

Entries can be submitted any time from now, with entries closing on the 1st April 2016. (Or if dropping into one of the previously mentioned drop off points in Brisbane, Canberra, WA, South Australia, Newcastle, or Melbourne, cut off is COB 31/3/2016).

Happy brewing!

Lurrrvely. I had a read through the program but missed that paragraph.

Might have to pull my finger out and get some entries bottled..


EDIT: I just had a lightbulb moment.. I'm heading down to Canberra for the beer and cider festival next weekend so can drop my entries in to Belco whilst down there.

Now I know how Thomas Edison must have felt..
