TRASH XXVIII Competition filling up fast!

E-mail sent by Jack Smith, Sunday, February 18th, 2018 @ 10:18am

Hey Brewers!

If you are planning to enter the TRASH XXVIII Homebrew Competition and have not yet registered your entries, do so fast because it's nearly full.  The competition is capped at 375 entries and as of the time I'm writing this we have received 316 entries.  Register at

This year we limited it to 6 entries per brewer for the first week to allow everyone a chance to get some entries in and even still it's almost full already.  Next Saturday at 8:00 AM we'll raise the per-brewer limit to 12 but the competition might be full by then.  Be sure to get your entries in before we allow others to go back for seconds!
