The Great Northern Brewers Club

We need BJCP judges and/or experienced brewers to help judge the BJCP sanctioned E.T. Barnette Homebrew Competition.  Judging will take place on Saturday, July 15th at the Silver Gulch Brewing and Bottling Company located in Fox, Alaska (a small mining community 11 miles north of Fairbanks) starting at about 10:00 a.m.

The styles of beers that will be judged have been changed from previous years. The seven judged categories will be:
  • Pilsner (2A-C)
  • English Pale Ale (8A-C)
  • American Ale (10A-C)
  • Porter (12A-C)
  • Stout (13A-F)
  • India Pale Ale(14A-C)
  • Fruit/Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer (20/21A)

Once again judges can save the cost of shipping by pre-registering their competition entries.  All they need to is fill out the Entry and Bottle ID forms and include fee payment for each of their entries and then simply drop off the entries on the day of the competition.  Note that the idea of the pre-registration is to allow the registrar to log the entries beforehand.  Therefore, the pre-registration information and payment must be received BEFORE Saturday, July 15th.

Please send your pre-registration and payment to:
