As the name suggests, the last (for now) #SpoBREW will be the most impromptu homebrew contest we have ever hosted. #SpoBREW Impromptu will go down on Saturday, May 31st, 4pm, which pretty much means you must have your homebrew ready already.
This time, however, the game is different. Very different. We will not judge on one single type of beer; we will judge the brewers on whatever they bring. In other words, a brewer can bring multiple types of beer, whatever she or he wants to bring.
- Each brewer or team (we'll use the term «brewer» for simplicity's sake) enter beers they already have brewed. (Or brew it in a week if you want.)
- It does not matter if each and every bottle you bring is a different type of beer. The brewer is the one who will be judged. Bring as many types of beer as you want.
- The contest will be judged by the audience. The brewer will be judged on a scale from 1 to 6, and the weighted average wins.
- Bring as many bottles (or kegs) as you want: running out of beer quickly just means fewer people will drink your beer.
And that's it. There are no other rules. You can be as creative as you'd like in this dog eat dog contest.
Why the short notice? Why not make it a meticulous-ish event like previous years? Well… why not? We might have one brewer, we might have ten, we might have some completely different number… We don't care!
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in competing; location will be emailed to you. Yes: the location, too, is impromptu.
For those who just want to show up and drink beer, details will be released soon. And, again, it will be done a bit differently than before. Stay tuned for more.
Oh, and just because. Here's the best thing you will hear/watch all week:
