Mini Competitions

Liquid Poets host an intra club mini-comp nearly every quarter. This includes elements of iron-brewer and other fun quirks to keep members on their toes. Judges range from novice beer drinkers to local brewers and prizes range from sweet high fives to Pro-Am experiences. Winners receive the “Traveling Trophy” Mash Paddle plus a heavy hand in picking the next comps theme/style. Must be Liquid Poet Member to participate.

In order to let Poets prepare, we try to announce ahead of time; see the current comp list. To participate, simply show up to the listed meeting with a bottle for judges and some to share with the club!
