I guess that lot of people still have beer in fermenters (or 2-3) they need to choose one and hard to answer in form for questions about  ABV or ingrediends.
Cheers,

It's a pity your not doing it to BJCP standards, the process although not perfect on score sheet gives plenty of feedback to brewers and there's always judges looking for points.

Might there be a bottle collection from Dublin by any chance?   :blank:

Also would a micro IPA enterable under session IPA???
Tapped: FES, NEIPA, CocoIMS, Flanders 2018, Passion Fruit/Peach BW
Fermentors: Raspberry Wheat, Session IPA

We will be given feedback on entries under 5 criteria. Appearance, Smell, Taste, After taste and Drink-ability.

This is our 4th time to do a competition and we have never done BJCP, there are plenty of BJCP competitions on during the year. This is just our way to be a little but different

Is it OK to post bottles to the drop off points?


Yep I see no issue with that. Best place to post would be Widestreet Brewery. Just print off the google form (this is the label) and also include €5 cash
