Iron Brewer 2014 Judging

Iron Brewer Judging 2014. The judging of the beers brewed at our 7th annual Sonoma Beerocrats Iron Brewer Competition will be Saturday March 22th 10:00 am at Carol Shelton Winery. Many thanks go out to Mitch, and Carol at Carol Shelton Winery for once again being our host for this event. This event is a potluck lunch so bring your favorite dish to share. The club will supply Barbeque Chicken, paper plates and plastic ware. We had 10 teams brewing this year. This is a people’s choice judging. BJCP guidelines do not apply here. The winners will be the beers liked the most by the crowd. Beerocrat members, their family and invited guests will be allowed to vote for their favorite beer.

Entrants bring six 12 oz. brown long neck bottles. No labels or markings of any kind on bottles or caps. 22oz. and swing tops are not allowed.

Team name with team Captain’s name will be attached with rubber band to each bottle using AHA/BJCP bottle identification form.

Beer turn in will begin at 10:00 am ending at 10.30 am; no beers will be accepted after 10:31 am.
Ribbons and Beverage People gift certificates will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

    So will the beers be judged / tasted blind with out us knowing who's is who's or will the results of the judging be directly proportionate to the number of friends that you invite to the judging? =D

      I love it Robert! That means lots of good beers to taste. But remember . . . no one remembers who comes in second place.

    These events are always great. There is a lot of work and expense that goes into events like these. I'd like to prost Ron, our president for all the work he put into this.. especially all the work cooking the meat today. And, what about Mr Mike.. I can always learn something from his impromptu talks.. wow! Great job guys.

    Finally... the brewers. Thanks to all who showed up with their beer. This was another 5 star event in my not so humble opinion.
