Last night I finished up submitting my entries to the Colorado State Fair Homebrew Competition. They're still using the 2008 style guide. That means my Piwo Grodziskie and my Kentucky Common would have to compete with "Other smoked beers" and "American Brown Ale" respectively, something neither are really designed to do. I'm a bit PO'd: I was really hoping to compete in the new "Historical" category. Anyone else out there encountering competitions that refuse to let go of the past? And any comments on the new style guide? I know we've had discussions here before and think it might be a good time, a year later, to revisit our opinions of the new style guidelines.
