Full details are in the flyer – esb2014 v1.2, the entry form will be uploaded nearer the closing date.
We NEED YOU to do YOUR duty and ENTER!!
The competition is registered with the BJCP, so all you BJCP Judges can get in some practice and some points. Those of you who would like to judge mead may need to brush up (see http://www.bjcp.org/mead.php. ) and get some practice in. Non BJCP judges and stewards are as always very welcome.
