Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help Stoney Creek Homebrewers host a successful homebrew competition. We will accept as many volunteers as we can get. I am confident that we will have plenty of entries for judges. And Saturday November 12th will have plenty of tasks for stewards if you want to participate but take a break from judging. Please navigate to the Register tab above starting on September 26, 2022.
Below are the details that judges will need to be aware of:
We will be hosting both virtual judging and in-person judging. Virtual judges will pick up their entries the weekend of October 29/30 (locations and times will be coordinated as we get closer to that date). Judging can begin as soon as you and your partner have their entries. We ask that you complete the virtual judging by Friday, November 11th (so we can hold Best of Show on Saturday, November 12th).
Virtual judges have the freedom to coordinate through any platform of their choosing: Zoom, FaceTime, Google Meet, etc. We ask that you judge the same entry at the same time. You will complete the scoresheets through the competition portal on the Registration page.
In-person judging will take place on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at the Rec Room by Conshohocken Brewing in Phoenixville PA (230 Bridge St, Phoenixville, PA 19460). We will have pastries and coffee for breakfast. We want to start the morning session at 9:00am sharp; please plan to arrive by 8:45am. Lunch will be served around 12noon. An afternoon session will begin at 1:00pm (sooner if everyone is done with lunch and present). Best of Show will take place after the afternoon session.
In-person judging will also complete their scoresheets through the competition portal on the Registration page. Please plan to bring a computer/tablet to the judging. We will have wifi and outlets available.
