2014 Club Competitions

BHG Club Competitions are a fun way to get a bunch of brewers to make a variety of examples of a style to share at a meeting.  Everyone present at the meeting has a chance to sample each entry and score it on the BJCP’s 50 point scale which results in the People’s Choice award for the evening.  Those that bring an extra bottle will additionally receive a full formal BJCP evaluation scoresheet within the next week which will crown the Judge’s Choice winner.  The combined average score is the Overall Winner!  This originated with the AHA’s Club-Only Comp, with the Overall winner being submitted as the club’s entry.  Winners now earn points toward’s HomeBOY, with the chance of random prizes being handed out at any meeting.
