*ANNOUNCEMENT*

*NHC NATIONALS 2020*


I'm light of the Taoiseachs announcement and subsequent restrictions on public events regarding *COVID - 19* , we are announcing that this years NHC Nationals Homebrew Competition will be postponed for the foreseeable future.

We will hopefully look at running the competition at a more suitable time. As you can appreciate this is a period of uncertainty and we will not be able to give definite answers to when this can happen. Please bare with us until we have more information.

Just on this. Is there anything to be said for a small group of us to get together and judge the more hop-forward styles. I do remember after the last postponement (was that last year) some of the entries were a little 'stale' (for want of a better word) and I did wonder at the time if they would have tasted fresher if they were judged on time.

Unfortunately we will not be looking to do this. With the current situation re Covid-19 and the uncertainty of when we can re organise, we will have to sit and wait it out. Its out of our control.

So yeah this aged well didn't it. Come back to me on Monday when the country is on full lockdown (which it will BTW). All army personal have been ordered to report to their barracks on Monday morning with 72 hours worth of provisions.

But yeah sure lets try to judge some beer incase my NEIPA will be a couple of weeks past it's prime date.

I stand by my original assessment- Kellie had already given a measured and level-headed reply before you went all Helen Lovejoy. I don't get the mindset but I'm guessing that's why there are a bunch of numpties wandering about the Aldidls with their shopping trolleys piled high with toilet roll.

What mind set, all I was doing was pointing out you ridiculous request to have a smaller gathering so you can save your hoppy beer from losing it's freshness

Don't equate my statement to Gobhites buying truck loads of toilet paper.

I suppose you were one of those out on Saturday night getting your last fix in the pub
