Welcome to the Green Bay Rackers Home Brew Club

Golden Growler 2016

E-mail Print PDF

The Bull Falls Homebrewing Club has determined the style for their 2016 INTER-CLUB competition. It is style 7A. Vienna Lager (BJCP 2008 guidelines). The way the contest works is this:

  • Clubs conduct their own private contest for CLUB MEMBERS ONLY using whatever criteria they wish to use.
  • The club chooses its top three entries and submits them to the Golden Growler contest (held in April, right about the same time as the TTO.)
  • No cost for entering this contest. It is essentially a club-only contest and the club with the most points from their three beers wins.
  • Rules for the 2015 contest can be found at http://www.bullfalls-homebrewers.org/GoldenGrowler/ggclubrules.html

I think this would be great for our club to get involved with. As an incentive for members to compete in this, every member who brews a Vienna Lager for the Golden Growler will be allowed to entire it FREE in the Titletown Open, IN ADDITION TO their regular free entry for club members.

Club Vienna Lager entries will be judged twice - once before the TTO to determine who goes to the Golden Growler and then a second time during the TTO. The CLUB will judge the entries at the April meeting to determine which ones advance to the Golden Growler.

Further details will announced later at a club business meeting but I wanted to give everyone the heads up so they can start making plans.

There were a lot of positive things that happened with the change in venue and a few areas where we can improve things - but overall I believe it was a great competition.

*Two first places were awarded in this category due to a clerical error by the contest organizer. It was felt that the neither entrant nor the rightful 2nd & 3rd place contestants should be punished for that error.

I will have a complete report for the June meeting.
