Woody Cup 2020                    

Barrel Aged Beer 

Club Competition

                                                                       

 

                                                Official Guidelines and Information

 

Homebrew club competition only, the brewer/s is required to belong to a homebrew club. The brewer/s designates their Homebrew Club when they register and submit their entry or entries. More than one barrel aged beer can be entered per brewer/s.

 

If the club would prefer, they can hold an internal competition and the winning beer or a blend of winning beers get barrel aged. The final beer can be a single brewer’s creation, a collaboration of several beers into one recipe, or a blend of several beers within the club. It's really how creative and or collaborative the club wants to get. 

 

Each brewer/s is responsible for obtaining their barrel. The barrel can be any size and new or used.

 

The beer can be any style and any and all adjuncts are allowed. Examples are- chocolate, any spirit (whiskey, gin, etc.) fruit/s, herbs and more. As long as barley, hops, yeast and water are part of the recipe profile.
