The 5th Annual Orpheus MeadFest and Competition

What is the MeadFest?
Basically, it's an excuse to drink lots of great mead! Both a mead tasting and a competition, it's a benefit for Orpheus Pagan Chamber Choir. With Colorado meaderies sharing (and selling) their meads and a community tasting table for homebrewers, it's a a great afternoon of tasting and talking about mead!

How can I participate?
If you're a homebrewer, you can bring mead to share at the community tasting tables. This is a great chance to get immediate feedback from folks who lovemead and to talk mead with other homebrewers.

You can also join the homebrewer's division of the competition. It's $10 for a one or two bottle entry. You can enter in as many categories as you like.

Is the competition AHA-sanctioned? Yes!

Please note some important changes in this year's competition!
Because of its wonderful growth each year, the judging for the competition will be taking place off-site the evening before the MeadFest. In order that our registrar and stewards can organize the competition prior to the judging, we are not able to accommodate walk-in entries this year. 

You can send or drop off your entries from Monday, August 31 through Monday, September 28Please see the information sheets below for complete information.

Education topic: Open Forum!  A panel of experienced and successful OBC homebrewers will answer questions from the group in an open Q&A informal format.  Think of it as chatting about making better beer with 100 of your closest friends.

Food: We would like to have food available at this meeting, so we encourage our members to bring some food items for everyone to share. Don't forget that bringing food to share at a meeting can earn not only Karma points but also raffle tickets.  Meagan will be holding a raffle for all members that bring food items.  She will be giving away a $25 gift card and more. On top of all of this, our 2018 Burgermeister, Meagan Thompson would love the support!

Beer:  Beer is a very important part of these meetings. We wouldn’t have beer without our members. Growler fills and bottled homebrew  are highly encouraged as this is a great way to share your beer with your peers and get honest and immediate feedback. If you bring a keg of your homebrew to a meeting you will earn Karma Points! Keep in mind that we may have beer planned for the Education topic or beer from other club specific brewing events. So that we can balance the amount of beer available at our meetings It is very helpful for us to plan in advance of the meeting. If you would like to request a tap spot for your keg, or if you plan to pour a keg via a picnic tap, please let us know in advance! We ask that if you do bring a keg, that you give a brief talk to the members about the details of your beer . Please contact Club VP to see if there is room for your keg @ Brian.haslip@oregonbrewcrew.org

Please support your club and plan on attending! Guests and visitors are welcome at all "In" Meetings!
