Hi All,

Don't forget to sign up for this competition if you haven't already done so.

Not only does it promise great prizes (to be announced soon) but it also gives you an excuse to come visit sunny Belfast with its beautiful piazzas, stunning vistas and impressive collection of walls and roads and footpaths and that.
Also, who wouldn't want to spend a day in the class venue that is Brewbot, which showcases an ever-changing range from the sublime  to the magical to the downright unusual; and that's just the clientele hahahaha.

Anyway, in trying to plan for the event we're need to get an idea of the number of entries to expect and where to expect them from so, even if you haven't registered yet please just reply here with what you're hoping to enter, so we can start nailing a few things down.

Cheers,

-Barry

P.S. Tell your friends!
I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it.

I've just registered. I've one in the keg ready to bottle but I think I can do better, so I've another in the FV. The best one will be entered.
