Last March, on the very day that DOZE was to start judging the entries for the San Francisco region 1st round of the National Homebrew Competition (NHC), the American Homebrewers Association cancelled the competition due to the risks posed to judges and volunteers from the novel coronavirus.
So, sitting on hundreds of bottles of beer entered into the competition, what was DOZE to do with them all? Well, we JUDGED them, of course!
Over many sessions, and using a variety of socially-distanced and online meeting arrangement, DOZE’s cohort of BJCP judges got through every category, and sampled and evaluated each and every entry.
Now, we are proud to present the VERY UNOFFICIAL 1ST ROUND SF NHC AWARDS CEREMONY, July 18 at 7pm (Pacific Time). Tune into DOZE’s Facebook page #clubdoze for livestream access info.
