As those of you who are already participating in the competition have already heard, this year's post-competition awards banquet will happen immediately following the competition in the banquet space at James Street Speakeasy and Gastropub. You can find complete details and order a ticket here.
Banquet Details - James Street Speakeasy and Gastropub
- Saturday, October 25 @ 7:30pm
- Tickets available for $30
Anyone is welcome to participate in the banquet, whether you have entries in the competition or not. If you did enter beers in the competition, the banquet is a great opportunity to collect your score sheets just a few hours after the competition.
Volunteers Needed. On a related note, we're in need of a few additional volunteers on the day of the event on Saturday. We have a reasonable number of judges, but we still need more stewards, and a few more volunteers who are willing to help manage the cooler. If you know of someone who might be interested, direct them toward the volunteer page on the competition web site or put them in touch with the club officers. The remaining volunteer roles don't require any judging experience.
We'll see many of you at next weekend's competition!

Just a reminder that our October meeting is this Saturday. See below for details.
Saturday, October 4, 2014 @ 2pm
The Brew Gentlemen
512 Braddock Avenue
Braddock, PA 15104
Our October meeting will fall early in the month since we're having our annual competition at the end of the month. We'll be heading to The Brew Gentlemen, a small craft brewery and taproom in Braddock, that opened in May. It's a great place, with great beer brewed by some really great people. The "gentlemen" part isn't just a clever name!
Online Beer Scores. If you're interested in improving the quality of your homebrew and your judging skills, you should definitely check out Online Beer Scores site. If you're interested, you can register your latest homebrew and bring one or more bottles to the meeting. Exchange bottles with another brewer, and you'll have an opportunity to both judge their beer and receive some critical feedback for yours.
Don't let the "Serious" part of our name scare you off. If you have an interest in homebrewing come to one of our meetings and check it out. There is lots of good food and of course homebrewed beer. If you have any questions ask on the contact form.
