    Foam on the Range Homebrew Club is proud to announce the 2011-2012 Rocky Mountain Homebrew Club Challenge to be held at Falling Rock Tap House on November 5th. This competition is open to only and all Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming AHA Homebrew Clubs. We hope to create a good nature competition between the clubs to find out who will become known as the best overall Rocky Mountain homebrew club.

    Awards and prizes will be given to individual club members for the top 3 winners in each of the BJCP Style Guidelines Homebrew Categories plus the 3 top winners in both the beer and the meads & ciders the Best of Show. The grand prize is the coveted Foamer Firkin which will be given to the Homebrew Club that earns the most points to use for a year, much like the Stanley Cup but for a Homebrew Competition. The winning club will earn the distinction of being the Best Rocky Mountain Homebrew Club. The first winner of the Firkin, went to Foam on the Range located in Denver Colorado. Please see the attached document that explains the point system as well as a picture of the Foamer Firkin and it's first winning club.

    Our first competition was only open to Colorado, and Wyoming AHA homebrew clubs. This time we are now expanding eligible Rocky Mountain States to include Arizona, and New Mexico, homebrew clubs. This is doubling last competition invitees to a total of 57 homebrew clubs.

    Please visit http://fotr.brewcompetition.com/for competition rules and further detail. Also you can enter beers, meads, ciders via this web site as well as sign up to be a judge or a steward.

    We will also be printing up T Shirts with the competition name and all the participating homebrew club's names. If your club wants to compete please verify back to us at jondenver77@yahoo.com by October 1st so we can get the shirts made in time for the challenge which will then be available to all the participating homebrew club members.

    We also ask for each club to wear your homebrew club t shirts if you are either judging, stewarding, participating or just supporting your club. So if you think your club has what it takes to be crowned the Best Rocky Mountain Homebrew Club for 2011-2012 and can take home the Foamer Firkin. come join the fun.

    Cheers to all and Happy Holidays

    Still think it needs more bottle conditioning (55 days come 11/5), but either way I'll drop off an MHM submission for a little 19B representation. We shall see.
    Primary: "Alliteration" (12/12/12 semi sweet mead with Chardonnay yeast)
    Secondary:
    Conditioning: 9/11 Heaven Barleywine, Rhubarb Berliner Weisse, Perfect Match Porter
    Enjoying / On Tap: Moo! (Steel toe milk stout clone), peanut butter cup stout, Rye-aled Up (roggenbier), and Jack-o-lantern (pumpkin spiced saison)
    On Deck: "Wiser Bock" and "Obliteration" (westvbleteren 12 clone) or at least a kick ass quad since I have nothing to reference

    It ended up being larger than what I thought. Where did you get the total entry info?
    I entered two myself.
