Spooky Brew is back and better than ever! This year we will be hosted at
Goose Island Wrigleyville Goose Island Clybourn on October 26, 9a to 5p. Location changed due to the unfortunate closing of Goose Island Wrigleyville on Sept 29th.
As usual, Spooky Brew Review will feature judging in all categories of the BJCP Style Guidelines. But a highlight is always the judging of the special Spooky (scariest) and Smashed Pumpkin (Worst of Show) categories, which definitely should not be missed. We are also including Witches’ Brew, which is an open category for beer, mead, and cider brewed only by women.
NOTE: All entries for the Spooky and Smashed Pumpkin categories must be drinkable. Anything deemed otherwise by the Competition Committee will be DISQUALIFIED, and that’s very hard to do.
Please note that the actual competition is closed to the public and competitors. Only judges, stewards, and event staff will be allowed at the actual competition. This helps ensure the judges can focus and do what they do best.
Judges and Stewards – we need you! If you are interesting in serving as a judge or steward on October 25, please contact competition organizer Peter Sloan (peter @ chibeer.org). All general questions can also be directed to him.
