There’s is nothing more important to a brewer’s development than real time feedback from a beer that they’ve brewed. Our Club-Only Competition is open only to Lincoln Lagers and tentatively will be held at every other monthly club meeting. It is meant to provide brewers with valuable feedback, constructive criticism, recommendations for improvement, and recognition for well brewed beer.
Brewers who enter beers into club-only competitions will not only be evaluated against the classic style that they have entered, but they will also be awarded for winning in the categories. The nature of this competition will allow for brewers to use many of the same batches of beer to enter the Nebraska Shootout as well as participating events within the HPBOTY and MWHBOTY circuits.
Lagers Club-Only Competitions also provide a learning opportunity for those interested in evaluating beer as a BJCP judge or those who are just curious about the various styles of beer. From a judging standpoint, Lincoln Lagers competition organizers will always pair an experienced judge with another equally or less experienced judge.
It is Lincoln Lagers’ intent to provide experienced and qualitative feedback on all entered beers in the form of score-sheets, which contain scores & comments for aroma, appearance, flavor, mouth-feel, and overall impression.
