JUDGING IRON BREWER ROUND 1
10/28/14 at 7:30pm
Here's how it works: By the end of the day on 10/23 (this Thursday), you need to email email@example.com or private message Natalie or Jess on FB a description of your beer. This is to help the people judging the beer see how you tried to connect your beer to your region - you can give as much or as little info as you want. If you don't do it, you'll be judged without it, that's all.
Participants: Arrive a little early next Tuesday so we can number your beers for the blind judging. You must arrive with a 6pack of unmarked bottles. Make sure you give it to one of the officers so we can get you checked in before your beer goes on ice.
Everyone will get to pick 1 of the 4 regions to judge (first come, first serve). You cannot judge a region you entered a beer into. Beers will be judged on 3 areas: Quality of the Beer itself, How Well the Beer Represents the Region, and Overall Impressions. You will then rank order the beers from favorite (1) to least favorite (5 or 6, depending on the region). We will average out the scores, and the beer with the lowest average will win.
Round 2: The top 2 people from each region will move on to compete in the Let's Get SMASH'ed challenge. The 3rd place participant for each region will be moved to a sudden death round judged by the officers. We will pick our favorite out of those 4, and that person will move on as well. That way, we will have 3 teams of 3 for round 2, with the top person movin on in each category for the final round.
