See announcement below. I tentatively plan to judge in this competition, and if so can take a few others along.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Good morning Judges!

The Association of Bloomington-Normal Brewers (ABNormal Brewers) is hosting our annual For What It's Wort competition at Destihl Brewery in Normal, IL on July 21st 2018. This competition is BJCP sanctioned, and will be judged based on the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines. Mead/Cider entries are accepted.

If you have any interest in assisting with judging responsibilities, please register on the For What It's Wort competition page and indicate your availability: http://forwhatitswort.brewcomp.com/

Competition Day Details (Times are in CDT):

8AM - 9AM - Arrival:- A light breakfast will be provided for judges and stewards prior to the first session.
9AM - 12PM - Flight/Session 1
12PM - 1PM - Lunch/Raffle -- The club will provide tokens to judges for 1 meal and 1 beer that can be redeemed inside the Destihl Brewery Beer Hall. If you'd like to take a quick gander at their menu, it's available at this link: In addition to lunch, our club will raffle off some of the swag donated by our sponsors at this time.
1PM - 4PM - Flight/Session 2

After Best of Show has completed, representatives from Destihl Brewery, White Oak Brewing, and Lil Beaver Brewery will select commercial ramp-up beers from the entries that were included in the BOS round.

We look forward to seeing you in July! Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Favorite Beer?: Dirty Hippy Mild. Or Samichlaus. Maybe Bigfoot. Or Bourbon County Stout. Victory Prima Pils would also do...

Thanks for making this section of the forum, Joel. I can't do FWIW this year, unfortunately, due to a certain red themed charity run that weekend.

If you want to do some judging the previous weekend, see my post about IBC.

Gak... I need better calendar management. In that case I might end up doing Indy after all. Would have to be like last year-- leaving noonish Friday and skipping the first Friday session.

Judges-
I don't think I will do the overnight trip to Indiana. Good competition, tho. I'm available for judging at the FWIW competition the next Saturday, 7/21. Is anyone still considering judging there? I'll offer to drive.
Running in any color seems the polar opposite of beer judging and I must draw a line somewhere. ;D

I will be judging at FWIW and not the IBC. They are still short a few judges in Normal, so if you are available on Saturday July 21 sign up at the link above.
