For the brewers who qualified for the Bert Grant Award Competition, here are the competition details:

The purpose of this competition is to find the Best of Show from the Best of Shows. Qualified entrants are allowed to submit ANY of their beers for the competition (it does not need to be the one that placed in the BOS, but that may be a good indicator of their best beer). So, obviously rebrews of your beers are allowed. They can enter in any BJCP style that they want. This does include meads and ciders. The beers will be evaluated in a BOS round format to BJCP guidelines by a panel of judges selected by the WAHA Judge Committee Chair (Jerome Seipp). We are planning to announce the winner at the Cascade Brewers Exbeerience in March.

For each placement in a BOS round, the qualified brewers are allowed one entry (up to 3 entries max per person for all qualifications). See the list below for how many entries individuals are qualified for.

Entries Qualified:
Will Fredin: Up to 2 entries
James Brischke: 1 entry
Mike and Steve Brown: Up to 3 entries
Steve Milnes: 1 entry
Dennis Nagy: 1 entry
Mark Pendergraft: 1 entry
Peter Twigg: 1 entry
Cliff Johnson: 1 entry
Tim Hayner: 1 entry

Here are the competition details:

Bert Grant Competition
Competition Date: Feb 27th, 9:00 am, Big Al Brewing
Entries Due: Feb 24th
Mailing/Drop Location: Larrys Brewing Supply, 7405 S. 212th St. #103, Kent, WA 98032 (253)-872-6846

In addition to the BOS judging, like last year we will have other BJCP judges evaluate your beers in a normal competition format and fill out electronic score sheets that will be e-mailed to you within a day (more than likely, the day of the competition).  This is one of the fastest turn-arounds that you will ever get!
