    Call for judges just went out for Westgate Brewers Stout Extravaganza 2019. If you didn't get it and are interested PM me and I will pass on the email address. They will be looking for a range of judges including novices. It is BJCP registered for those who are.

    As per last year, we will have a Specialty Category for those brewers who like to experiment. There were a huge number of entries, with Specialty being the second largest, so this will require additional judges. Feel free to pass this request around. If anyone has an interest in the Specialty Category, let me know and I will pencil you in.
