There is nothing more important to a brewer’s development than real time feedback from a beer that they’ve brewed. Our Club-Only Competition is open only to HOPs members, and will be held each quarter at our monthly club meetings. It is meant to provide brewers with valuable feedback, constructive criticism, recommendations for improvement, and recognition for well brewed beer.
Brewers who enter beers into club-only competitions will not only be evaluated against the classic style that they have entered, but they will also be awarded for winning in the categories.
It is HOPs’ intent to provide feedback on all entered beers in the form of score-sheets, which contain scores & comments for aroma, appearance, flavor, mouth-feel, and overall impression.
The styles for each Quarterly competition were requested and agreed upon by our membership as follows for the 2020 calendar year:
