September CoC Deadline

We have a busy week for competitions coming up! The drop off deadline for the September club only competition is this Friday 9/15 at Dallas Homebrew and Homebrew Headquarters. This month's COC includes Fruit, Wild, and Sour beers from categories 23, 28, & 29. I will also be collecting entries after the club meeting at the Lake Saucer tomorrow. Please do not bring your entries into the Saucer as this is a violation of TABC rules.

COC Dropoff Deadline TODAY!

Just a quick reminder that today is the drop off deadline for the June club only competition at Dallas Homebrew and Homebrew Headquarters. Both shops close at 6p so be sure to drop off your Scottish, English, and Irish entries (Categories 11 - 17) before then!

We already have 10 entries logged into the competition and I anticipate picking more up today so we will likely need 4 judges next week. If you are interested in judging, please send an email to firstVP@nthba.org.

Busy Week for Competitions!

Good morning, NTHBA!  This is a very busy week for competitions!  On Wed 6/14, I will be hosting a packing party at Dallas Homebrew in Carrollton for the Operation Fermentation competition in Austin.  I will be there by 5p with packing supplies.  Please arrive as close to 5p as possible so you have time to pack your entries before the store closes at 6p.  As always, the club will pay the shipping charges for sending your entries.

2017 Club Only Competition Schedule

This year's officers are in the process of setting the 2017 Club-Only Competition schedule. Since a new set of style guidelines was introduced in 2015, we would like your input on the styles you would like to see in next year's COC. The 2015 guidelines include some new categories and revisions to the favorites! Have you heard of a Piwo Grodziskie or Lichtenhainer? These are just 2 of the categories in the Historical Beer category (#27) along with Gose, Pre-Prohibition Lager, and Roggenbier to name a few of the more familiar styles.
