Austin ZEALOTS Homebrew Inquisition 2019 (16th Annual) - We don't need no stinkin' guidelines!  Deadline to enter for 2019: July 13.  Go to the Inquisition OpenBrewComp website to enter and pay for your entries between July 1-13.  Take or ship your entries to Austin Homebrew Supply or SoCo Homebrew between July 1-13.  Details are in a file below.  Category 11: BRUT BEERS.  Starring the Brut IPA style, we're opening this category up to other beers which use enzymes, alternative yeast, Brettanomyces, or fungi to ferment completely dry.  We may use a hydrometer to check its at 1.000 FG or below.   (NOTE:  if you wait to dropoff beers until July 13, you need to have them to AHS or SoCo by noon, or it's even better to take them to the Brewtorium that day by 3 p.m. at the homebrew club meeting)

Awards will be announced at the ZEALOTS picnic on Sat., Aug. 10 at Emma Long Park at approximately 2:30 p.m.   This website will be updated with the winners within a couple of days after the picnic.  Scoresheets will be emailed out within 2 weeks of the picnic.

The Austin ZEALOTS (Zymurgic Enthusiasts of Austin Loosely Organized Through Suds) Homebrewers present the 16th Annual Austin ZEALOTS Homebrew Inquisition, certified by no one….errrr…The Lone Star Circuit!!   The Inquisition (contest) consists of 11 categories as described in the files below, none of which are BJCP, AHA, or CIA certified.  However, points earned in the Inquisition will count toward the Lone Star Circuit.  The judging of the beers, meads & ciders will be on a 100 point scale.  Strict style guidelines will not be used; just enter your beer in the category that best fits its flavor.   For once, let’s forget about guidelines & score the beer on how good it tastes and not downgrade a great beer because the color is a bit dark!  Actually, we just want to drink your beer!  Entry requirements are two bottles, 11 oz. or greater, and the fee is $8 per entry (cash, check or Paypal).  You must brew the beers on a homebrew system.  Register & pay for your entries between July 1 and July 13 at  http://inquisition.brewcomp.com/.   Enter special ingredients or descriptions for categories 7-11.  Bring or mail entries to Austin Homebrew Supply, 15112 N Interstate Hwy 35, Austin, TX 78728 or SoCo Homebrew, 8201 S. Congress Ave., Austin, TX, 78745.  Entries must be received between July 1 & July 13.  Please remove labels and blackout lettering on caps.  Print bottle labels from the Inquisition site & rubber band a bottle label on each entry.  Relax, have a homebrew!   (if dropping off on the last day, please bring entries to the Brewtorium by 3 p.m. at the club meeting)
