Come test your cider and mead-making prowess in what is becoming a truly northwest competition…The Washington Mead & Cider Cup.

This is an AHA/BJCP Competition as well as a 2014 WAHOTY Qualifier. The Greater Evertt Brewers League is hoping for a record turnout this year with drop-off locations down the I-5 Corridor (including Vancouver, Portland, and Hillsboro). Competition information can be found here.

Entries for all mead and cider categories, 24-28 of the BJCP Guidelines will be accepted for this competition. Registration for entries as well as registering to judge or steward can be found here. DEADLINE for submitting entries is February 28, 2014.

Judging will be held on Saturday, March 8th at Reliance Network in Bellevue, WA, beginning at 9:00AM. A judging clinic will also be held at 8:30AM hosted by Mark Tanner, the 2013 NHC Mead Maker of the year, and Laura and Tavish Sullivan, the 2013 NHC Cider Makers of the year.

If you have any questions regarding this competition, please contact Laura Sullivan

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!
