      should the club send in a few offerings?????

      make sure we pick a not so packed regional location.. let’s all hope for another Gold medal for John Raz.

      I just applied to enter 3 beers:

      Baltic Porter

      Brett Beer

      Belgium Quad (though I am unsure what category to enter that under for the 2105 guidelines)

        Belgian quad appears to belong in 26D.  The comments in that style speaks to Abbey and Trappist Quads.  Unless you have something more to it, such as a sour bug, that’s the category I would guess it belongs to…

        If you have the beer, bring it for the February meeting and ask the club.

          Thanks for the information! I tasted it and will not bottle it, or enter it. I don’t like it and will be dumping it. I am entering a Baltic Porter and Brett Beer (that I brought to the holiday party at Crooked Ewe) both under the club name. I got into the first round in Chicago this year, and hoping that they will pass onto the final round. The Baltic Porter is the same batch that passed onto the final round last year, but did not place.

            Good luck!

            I didn’t have anything I thought was competition-ready.  I really didn’t plan well going into the competition window to have something prepared.  I probably should commit to having a few beers for the 2017 NHC.
