Received from our friends to the north:

I’m writing ask for your help judging or stewarding at the 9th New England Regional Homebrew Competition, coming up on Saturday, October 18th.  We are expecting about 450 entries so we will need quite a few qualified staff.  This year’s competition, which again will be held at Martha’s Exchange, a great brewpub in downtown Nashua, NH.  If you can come and help judge, it would be greatly appreciated.  Also, as the proceeds for this competition will be donated to the American Cancer Society, you will be helping in a great cause (besides judging beer)!

NERHBC is an AHA and BJCP sanctioned competition.  The 2008 revision of the BJCP guidelines will be used for this event.

For out of town judges, we will provide information about local accommodations and activities, and we are currently looking at after-competition activities as well.  Please also share information about this competition with your fellow home brewers.

If you can join us on October 18th, please sign up at

All the best,

Eric Adriaansen

Organizer, 9th New England Regional Homebrew Competition
