The Keg and Barrel's 2nd Annual Outlaw Homebrew Competition

I don't usually post stuff regarding beer events in other states mainly because I'm a New Orleans/Louisiana niche blog. For obvious reasons I focus on this area. But recently I was approached by John Neal who is the owner of the Keg and Barrel in Hattiesburg, MS. He invited myself and my pallet to be one of the judges of the 2nd Annual Outlaw Homebrew Competition.

I know the decision as to whether or not The Beer Buddha will be in attendance has really been eating up the beer folk of Mississippi. Well, I'm here today to announce that yes, I will be there and am looking forward to being a judge at one of the most prestigious homebrew festivals in the Southeast. Remember I am from New Orleans so bribes will be accepted. Money, beer, kegerators, it's all good. The more expensive the better your chance of winning.

Here are the details of the competition:

Keg and Barrel’s 2nd Annual Outlaw Competition

Date: October 8th 2011
Time: 12pm-3pm
Place: The Keg and Barrel, Hattiesburg, MS

To Register as a Homebrewer, visit our website to download the registration form and rules

Tickets will go on sale September 19th.

Our goal for the Outlaw Competition is to bring brewers together to learn, share and experience homebrewing at its best. Last year we had about 30 brewers enter and about 63 different beers. Tickets to attend sold out in a few days.This event is private event for homebrewers and ticket holders. We hope to see the beer community come together for an afternoon to meet other homebrewers in the area, sample every ones beer, listen to some music and really just have fun (and if you take home a couple of awards that's not too shabby either.)

Drink Beer!

See ya in Hattiesburg people! Good luck!
