Supplies Have Arrived

It has seemed for weeks now that the 2014 NHC Austin judging was a ways away; not any more! The time is quickly approaching and Stuart and I are quite busy getting everything in order. Oh yes, did I mention? (George) Stuart West is my partner in crime and has been invaluable to this effort. Stuart brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having previous ran the Foam Rangers' Dixie Cup Competition, one of the largest in the U.S.

NHC Supplies And Cold Room At Rogness Brewing
The supplies from the American Homebrewers Association arrived late last week and are not deposited at the judging site. Like Stuart, Dan Wheeler at Rogness Brewing has been amazing. He got us all set up at Rogness' future expansion space next door where they will be launching their line of ciders in the future. Dan "fired up" the cold room (how's that for an oxymoron?) for us and entries have already began being delivered from the drop-off site at Austin Homebrew Supply. Additionally, Forrest Rogness, owner of both operations has been incredibly supportive of the Austin 1st Round Judging. We couldn't ask for better hosts.

As for the blog, please note that there are now some links above to static pages. Follow the links (in blue) to get all information on the judging schedule and judge/steward registration.

Yours Aye!
