The Great Northern Brewers Club

By Ira Edwards- February 26, 2007
We just finished the Fur Rondy Homebrew Contest, and the next one is coming around the bend very soon:  The Snow Goose Break-Up Homebrew Competition.  Entries will be judged on Saturday, April 14 starting at 10 am at the Snow Goose restaurant.  Since you will have just finished getting the taxes done (for those last minute folks...), this will be a perfect time to come enjoy the fellowship of other brewers and hone your judging skills.

This contest is limited to Six (6) categories:

  • Helles (1D)
  • Classic American Pils (2C)
  • Altbier (7C)
  • Ordinary Bitter (8A)
  • American Brown (10C)
  • Dry Stout (13A)
  • Fruit/Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer (20/21A)

GNBC entrants may choose up to 4 entries to be judged for Brewer of the Year status, but may enter once per category in the other categories...

Entries can be brought to the brewery on Friday, April 13 after 12pm.  All shipped entries should be labeled as for the “Snow Goose Break-Up HBC”, and shipped to:

Snow Goose Restaurant/Sleeping Lady Brewing Co.,
717 West Third Avenue
Anchorage, AK 99501

Shipped entries will be stored in the brewery coolers until they are opened for entry in to the contest.

Awards may include Medals, Gift Certificates, Brewery Paraphernalia, and will definitely include local bragging rights.
