American Brewmaster is hosting the 2nd Annual Piedmont Brewer’s Cup on Saturday October 22nd, 2011. The event is a sanctioned AHA/BJCP competition and will be judged in Raleigh at Big Boss Brewery (competition begins at 8am and the awards ceremony is at 6:30pm) located at 1249 Wicker Drive Raleigh, NC 27604.
The Piedmont Brewer’s Cup is only open to brewers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia. They will also be welcoming a new state in the line-up: Maryland!
Registration opens on September 10th and will last through October 14th.
This is a great competition for newer brewers as well. It is smaller than some of the other competitions but still has certified judges that will give you great feedback on your beer. It is definitely an event worth entering just for the experience of a competition, and who knows, maybe you’ll come home with some new medals.
