The 2013An AHA/BJCP Sanctioned Homebrew Competition
With deep regret the 2013 competition scheduled for Sept. 21, 2013 has had to be cancelled. The new Georgia House Bill 99 effective July 1, 2013 mandates
that all homebrew events must have a permit from the municipality where they will be conducted. The Brewmasters worked with the City of Alpharetta
to obtain the permit but the City feels that the new law, as written by the State, is too vague and they cannot act upon our request in the timeframe required.
Alternate options were explored including moving the competition to the City of Dunwoody but those did not work out.
Printing of bottle labels was disabled on the registration site since they needed to contain the event permit number. Since the time has come for entries to be
sent by brewers to the contest and there is no hope in sight of obtaining a permit in the time required we are forced to cancel this year's competition.
To our knowledge no entries have been sent to Brew Depot yet but if any have been dropped off the brewers will be contacted
so they can pick them up.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for your patience and support!
