Know of any contests

Post by fitz » Wed May 26, 2004 3:46 pm

Does anyone know of any homebrew contest running within the next few months?
I would really like to test a few of my wares, but even more important, I would like to veiw a contest. I live in WV so the closer to here the better (Pittsburgh PA or Morgantown WV is equally close). Any reasonable distance would be cool.

Check out the club I belong to Fitz, we have talked before, maybe even join our club? Who knows, just check it out, we have a cool forum too. www.thekgb.org we have some links that might help you find something closer too. We have some members that have spent some time in your area, don't be afraid to talk to them, everybody is very helpful.

I think I checked the sight out before, and you guys seemed to have a good time with the craft.
I will check it out again.
I think you are located a good distance from me though.
With this homeland security thing, You almost get afraid to type in anything with the letters kgb even if you are talking about BEER.

The KGB

Post by bigdosgood » Fri May 28, 2004 11:50 am

Dude, the KGB is gone since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Homeland Security would just laugh if they saw the site. Our homebrew club is the Kuykendahl Gran Brewers. Yes, we have a Russion theme, but that is it. We have some cool links to other brew clubs etc. Many of the competitions are national and anybody can enter. We have guys sending beer all over the place.

Just like the fbi is not the F B I

fitz, I'm also a KGB member, actually I'm a double agent, CIA(Cane Island Alers) member as well. Here's a link you might want to check out, they keep it updated fairly regularly.

It's no big deal shipping the stuff , but PACK IT WELL, and lable it FRAGILE in BIG BOLD letters. The place I work for just shipped some parts and....do you remember the Samsonite commercial with the gorilla?.....I think that frickin gorilla works for UPS. We only shipped the parts 50 miles, I had to repair ALL of them. Good luck on your ventures, where ever they may be.
Cheers
