Folks, it is now September 1st. Response to this year's BrewUnited Challenge has been wonderful - we've received forty percent more entries than we did last year - but there are still some spots left against this year's expanded entry cap. If you register right now, you can still enter any beer outside of a SMaSH (though we do have a wait list for that category if you are still interested, as we always have a few cancellations). Understand, those spots are limited - there are fewer than five spots left in the American Beers Division, and roughly eighty spots left overall - but the spots are still there.
The official, absolute last day to register for this year's BrewUnited Challenge is September 15th. However, we start accepting beers at our judging sites on September 26th - and all beer must be received no later than October 7th. If you bottle condition, you probably want to be brewing right away (if you have not already done so)... and keggers won't want to wait much longer, either.
As of this post, we have some thirty-nine sponsors who have contributed nearly eight thousand dollars worth of prizes. Please, allow that to sink in - eight thousand dollars. This is just NUTS. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in every Division will receive a crazy prize package, the overall winner will receive an even crazier one... but there will be tons of prizes given out, overall. Beautiful custom medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place of every single style category, plus every Division, plus to the SMaSH category. Every single entrant will get a free copy of the Android app, Brew.io. And don't forget the Homebrew Hero awards, given to the best of the best - those who enter three beers that score...
