CHAOS & Horse Thief Hollow White IPA Competition

CHAOS & Horse Thief Hollow's Club-Only Competition:  White IPA

Friday June 23, 2017

Entry Form Here

Enter CHAOS’ Club-Only competition, sponsored by Horse Thief Hollow - the winning brewer will get to brew her/his beer with Head Brewer Dave Williams at Horse Thief Hollow!  

A BJCP accredited competition, you’ll get high-quality feedback from BJCP judges.   This is a one-style competition, all the beers entered will be judged as White IPA, 21B in the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.  According to the guidelines, a White IPA is:   

A fruity, spicy, refreshing version of an American IPA, but with a lighter color, less body, and featuring either the distinctive yeast and/or spice additions typical of a Belgian witbier.

IMPORTANT DATES:

Wednesday, June 21, 2017:  Entries due at the Brewhouse by midnight

Friday, June 23, 2017 6 pm - 7:30 pm:  Judging

Friday, June 23, 2017 7:30 pm:  Announcement of awards, sharing of entries, bottle share, food

TBD:  Tapping Party at Horse Thief Hollow

 RULES:

  1. Participation is limited to members of CHAOS

  2. All entries must be brewed and fermented at the CHAOS Brewhouse

  3. One entry per brewer

  4. Enter your beer here by June 21, 2017

  5. Submit two 12-ounce bottles of your beer, in brown bottles with no distinguishing markings, with your name on a piece of paper rubber-banded to each bottle by June 21, 2017

Entering competitions like this is a great way to get feedback on your beers - the entries will be made anonymous by the competition coordinators so the judges won’t know who brewed which beer and the feedback will be unbiased.

 You can brew for this in pairs, with co-brewers, if you’d like.   With three months notice, you can start planning your brew now and reserve a brew time.  For more info on White IPAs, take a look at the style guidelines here and read this online article.  

Questions?  Ask the organizing committee:  Jim Vondracek, John Gammal, Kyle Nordquist

So glad you're doing that,

So glad you're doing that, Jay. It's really hard to find much literature on the style, let alone examples. This will truly test our range.
