February Meeting

The February meeting will take place Thursday, February 10th. We'll be gathering upstairs at Dogfish Head in downtown Rehoboth. Things will get started around 7pm. We will hopefully be discussing the upcoming competitions, and be able to provide some more details about them. As always, feel free to bring along samples of your latest creations, but it is in no way mandatory. Your $1 donation to the Jimmy Kroon Fund is required - gotta keep our club President dressed to thrill. It's pizza night at Dogfish, so come on in for dinner and the meeting. Hope to see everyone there!

Battle of the Brews at the Delaware State Fair

The Delaware Department of Agriculture and Delaware State Fair are excited to announce Delaware’s first AHA/BJCP-sanctioned homebrew competition – the inaugural Delaware State Fair - Battle of the Brews – July 23, 2011 on the Delaware State Fairgrounds.

Details, printable flyers, etc. can be found at official competition website, but here are the most important things to remember: You must register at the Delaware State Fair between April 1 & June 1, 2011 and then deliver your beer (see website) by July 11. To maximize your beer karma, make sure you use plain bottles labeled with BJCP Bottle ID forms (attach with a rubber band please).

Cash prizes will be awarded for Best of Show winners and category winners will be honored with fame, notoriety, (and ribbons). And we’ll have and craft beer education and sampling activities going on during judging.

Spread the word about the Battle of the Brews on BeerAdvocate and Facebook.
