It’s Open Season at the ZOO!

ZOO Members at Springfield Brewing Company

Once again, it’s time for our spring competition, and this time, it is OPEN SEASON.  We are accepting homebrewed beer entries of any style in the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

The winner will get a shot at Pro-Am glory at GABF brewing with our fantastic sponsor and great friends of the club over at Springfield Brewing Company.

That’s right.  If you win Best of Show at this competition, you will get to scale up, brew, and serve your recipe with the professionals over at Springfield Brewing Company.

If you don’t get Best of Show, don’t worry about it.  The Homebrewery in Ozark is offering a few prizes for medalists, as well.

So, don’t wait.  Enter your finest ales and lagers at our competition website. Make sure to sign up and register your entries by April 27th, or it’ll be too late.  The sooner the better, my friends.

While you’re at it, we need volunteers to help steward and judge the competition, so please feel free to sign up on the competition website, even if you are not competing.  No experience necessary, we’ll team you up with experienced volunteers to guide you through the entire process.

And may the best brewer win!
