Welcome back for another year! It is with great pleasure that The Boston Wort Processors present the Fourteenth Annual Boston Homebrew Competition. This year's competition follows in the fine tradition of brewing and judging that has been proven at our previous competitions. This competition attracts entries from many of the best brewers not only in New England but across the country and is judged by many of the founding members of the Beer Judge Certification Program. We look forward to your participation this year!
This is a BJCP Registered/Sanctioned event and we will be judging all 28 BJCP 2008 Styles for this competition! Also, as has been the case since its founding, this year's contest again will be part of the New England Homebrewer of the Year series (http://www.wort.org/NEHBOTY/nehboty.html) and as in past years, will serve as the Northeast Region Qualifying Event for the Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing! Winners in the following categories will qualify to enter in the MCAB national championship round.
All subcategories in the above styles will be included in MCAB XII. Check out the MCAB website (http://www.hbd.org/mcab) for more details. New information on MCAB, and info on the finals for previous MCAB's are available at this site.
We are using the 2008 BJCP style guidelines. Please refer to http://www.bjcp.org/stylecenter.php to check the latest style descriptions and numbers. A link to the BJCP Styles can be accessed from our web site for reference.
We are accepting entries in all Beer categories as well as Ciders and Meads. Ciders and Meads will not be included in the Best of Show flight, but they will count toward the New England Cider Maker of the Year and New England Mead Maker of the Year competition series.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
