You can send 2 bottles it says, but if you do, and they drank both already, then you won't be represented in the BOS round.

Or maybe I'll just have a party with them instead :) It's been a hard year of competing and I'm ready to quit any time soon.

Mark, there's a category or two you missed! Were you slacking off over the summer? Quite an impressive lineup.

The usual Brewnoser method is to send them in the back of Chalmers' van.

Thanks Keith but not a chance. I chat to Jared and the other's on Twitter regularly. He's on it! :) BTW; Jared says he has "almost decided" to do this again next year. He's collected a group of investors/partners (one of them is a yeast fanatic with a yeast bank!) and they are starting up a brewery in Winnipeg called "Torque Brewing."

Limit of only five entries for this one. I'm sending in some new beers that need medals and some old ones that don't.

:cheers2:

@Mark. Don't you have a bitter called "The Bitter End"? are you sending to this one? Be funny if it won the final comp.

I didn't pack at the weekend. I was worried if I sent on Monday the beer might end up sitting in a warehouse somewhere on the veterans day holiday today (I am thinking of my Dad today who fought in WW2, missing him).

Any way! Today's a huge pack (deadline Friday) or I'll be up the creek without 5 paddles. Last BOTY comp ...The Bitter End.
