MUG Nationals

Recommended Posts

Registration - Check

Hotel - Check

Flight - Resolve next week

Rental Car - Probably next week

Personal expenses - No earthly idea how to do this one.

Figure out what beer to bring...…….that's a tough one

 

I went a bit rouge on the hotel.  My plan is to arrive Wednesday 17, and fly out on Tuesday 23, thus I'm there for about a week.  While the hotel that Mr. Beer is selecting for the event is excellent, since I'm going to stay more days, their rate will change for the non-conference days.  Instead, I'm staying at the Extended Stay America -Tucson Grand Road.  It's with walking (staggering) distance of the Sheraton Tucson, and between us is an IHOP in case I want breakfast (which I rarely eat).  Plus with the savings, I get to sample more Tucson breweries

 

Work on Flight will take a bit longer

Rental car can wait a while

What beer to bring...…...um...…….

 

Can't wait for October

So, have a question about the home brew competition, and since there is no official thread (yet), I have to post it here.  Do I need to mention any or all Mr. Beer products used in making the beer?

No. You don't need to mention any ingredients.

With all references to the MUG/Tucson Homebrew competition removed from the Forum, a little clarification from Mr. Beer would be appreciated for those that have not yet sent off their entries.

As of right now, we're lining up the details to still have the competition. So, it's tentatively still on. I'll make an effort to get an informational thread back up today.

I’m either bottling my beer this weekend or next. I hate bottling. Please let me know if I can save the effort.

Confirmed! The competition is still on. I won't be organizing it, but I will be competing and judging, so be sure you bring your best beer, boys! ;)😈

I have changed my entry styles. Maybe the beers will turn around but as of right now I didn’t feel my pale ale was good enough for competition. Good thing I have so much beer on hand. #beersquirell @AnthonyC

@MRB Tim what if a guy sent in his beer in one category and then he switches the category after it was shipped?

 

...or, after shipping entries 3 weeks ago, you discover that one of them has developed into a slow gusher? lol

 

You might contact the competition organizer and see if they can re-categorize your entry before Saturday  .https://tucsonhomebrewclub.brewcompetition.com/index.php?section=contact

Alas, I did not enter the Raspberry Sour so it's up to you to carry the Berliner category.  Best of luck, @Creeps McLane!  You deserve it!

SPECIAL NOTE: If I'm not shouting you out, it's not that I didn't like your beer, it's that I didn't try it or never got a name connected with it. I am but one man and can fit only so much beer in my tum tum. Everything we tasted was impressive.

I'm glad you said that before I replied because I totally believed you. No wonder I had a hard time pinning down whether it was French or Belgian, it was both! Pretty sneaky, Omega.

I entered three beers and only had one winner. Every damn beer @Bonsai & Brew entered won a medal. That’s crazy. Props to him

 

 

Pretty sure you both have plenty to brag about. I like your hop choices, a bit unconventional and works really well.

Congrats to all who placed!! Wish I had entered this year, but with my move, I just didn't have time (it also wouldn't have been fair...lol...). Great job on the saison, @Creeps McLane, it was fantastic and definitely the favorite! 🍻
