We're a bit late in getting the word out there but a quick heads up that Melbourne Brewers British Ales competition will be on again this year.

It will be held at Oscar's Tavern in Belgrave on Sunday 26th May.

There will be three categories this year:

Cat 1: Mild, Wee heavy, Southern and Northern English Brown, Irish Red
Cat 2: Ordinary Bitter, Best Bitter, Extra Special Bitter
Cat 3: Old ale and UK barley wine.

Entries will be via www.compmaster.com and need to be registered, paid for and dropped off to Grain and Grape or Brewer's Den the week before (by Saturday, 12pm). Alternatively entries which have been registered and paid for on compmaster by the cut off date can be dropped off at the venue by 12 pm, competition day (on the day only).

Entries will be $7 each - there may be discounts for subsequent entries and recognised club members but I need to confirm that.

Enter beer, come down on the day (Oscars has a good selection of tap and bottled beer) and so on and so forth. More details as they come to hand but get brewing those milds and bitters, dust off that barleywine you've kept aside for the last year or two .

Cheers

Usual Ferg - one entry per style, two per category max - so max of six beers.

Forgot to add - first prizes for all categories, certificates for all place getters.
Will add sponsors once I receive confirmation (hopefully today).

Edited Irish into the first post. My error.

Hopefully by the end of the weekend, compmaster will be live and accepting entries. Will confirm when I know that's the case.

Southern UK brown somehow got dropped off the list but is accepted as a style.

Can we confirm drop off points and times as weekend before,
Brewers Den, G&G and at the venue on the day (before 1pm) as stated in the OP?

The comps live on COmpMaster now guys - minor hiccup in the competition handover this year, but all fixed now.

Don't forget - Category 3 (strong ales) is back this year... if you've got those gems hiding away in a cellar, this could be the perfect opportunity to give them their day in the sun!

Cheers!,

Andy

Not too long in the sun though - lightstrike and all that.

So, can we confirm the Keg King is a drop-off point for this comp?

It's not been mentioned in this thread, but is stated in the appropriate Compmaster instruction page.

Would be great for those of us out this side of the city.

Is a shame about the date because that is GABS day for some of us :-(
I know. difficult to schedule this stuff in without clashing with something but you can enter and and not attend.

Warmbeer; I'm not sure - I'll check with Kee.

Hopefully compmaster is now live - any issues post here or PM AndyD
