Calling All Home Brewers!

OK folks, as promised, the submission form for the Southern Brewer's Challenge is now available. Where? Well, just look up and to your right on this page. If you click on that, it is pretty self-explanatory. That being said, I just want to mention one more time the importance of following the specified drop-off places, dates, and times. If you miss one of those, do not...I repeat, do NOT...just drop your beers off at any random Taco Mac and expect them to get into the judging. During the specified dates and times at the specified location, there will be someone from the contest administration there to receive your samples and get them safely where they need to be. If you miss the date and time at a particular store, just pick another one from the list in the submission form. I will publish that list again when it gets close to July, which is when submissions will be received.

The plan as of right now is to whittle the field down to a group of runners-up. How many people in that group will depend on how many total entries we get. Nobody knows what to expect at this point. But that group will get invited to a special event where the winner will be announced. We will drink a lot of beer before, during and after the announcement. That is a promise. So even if you don't win, just getting close will be fun too.

If you have any questions about this contest, please send them to comments@tappanstreet.com . They will get routed to the proper individuals from there. Thanks everyone. Now get out there and make some home brew!
