May Meeting – Bloat Open 2016

May 21, 2016 – 9-AM-5PM at The Eddy

Entry Registration closes May 11th at 11:55PM, and Judging Registration open through Friday, 5/13/16 at 11:55 PM. Sign up and judge!

The Bloatarian Open is a BJCP/AHA sanctioned Club-Only Competition. You must be a paid-in-full BBL member to enter a beer into the competition. Not yet a member? First Year Members can enter an unlimited number of entries in the competition FREE with your paid 2016 membership.

This year’s competition will take place on Saturday, May 21st at the The Eddy

Entries may not be hand carried to the competition except by participating judges or stewards. However, irregular packaging such as kegs and plastic bottle entries may be hand carried to the competition.

REGISTRATION IS ONLINE ONLY at http://bloatopen.brewcomp.com/ – REGISTER YESTERDAY!
On-site check-in begins at 8:30. Judging begins around 9:30. We will take a short break for lunch and hope to finish the main judging by 4pm.

The competition is open to all BJCP categories. Meads and Ciders are not eligible for Best of Show.

WANT TO JUDGE OR STEWARD? Register as a Judge or Steward on the site above! Simple as that.

You DO NOT need to be a Bloatarian member to judge/steward, and you DO NOT need to be a certified BJCP judge to judge. With a competition this large (200+ entries last year) we can never have enough volunteers, so sign up today!

Even if you’re not stewarding or judging, come by and socialize afterward and find out who won Best of Show. The awards ceremony will take place as soon as we have the scores tabulated.


1. Arrive between 8:30 and 9:30 to register your entries at The Eddy (only kegs and plastic bottle with carbonator caps are eligible for hand carried entries. All other entries must be dropped off at one of the specified drop off locations).

2. New members entering beers will need to pay 2016 dues on day of competition for a BBL membership.

3. All entries (bottled, kegged, pressurized plastic bottles, hollowed coconuts or otherwise) must be labeled when delivered. Print your labels after you have submitted your entry and BEFORE registration ends. Affix to your entry vessel with rubber bands only.

If you can, please bring a side dish to share as we will be grilling for lunch and hanging out after the awards ceremony.

Have you recently toured a brewery, been to a new favorite beer bar, or have some other beer related news you’d like to share with the club? Let us know and we’ll include it in the newsletter.
