The Battleground Brewers Guild is proud to announce the 2014 Skirmish in the Triad. The competition will take place on Nov 8th at the Hamilton Lake Swim and Tennis Center in Greensboro, NC. This is a BJCP sanctioned event and will cover all 23 BCJP Beer styles along with Ciders and Meads.
Registration will open September 26th and will close October 24th. Please be sure to sign up to Judge or Steward when you register. No experience is necessary to Steward but we ask that you have at least Stewarded a Homebrew Competition if you would like to Judge.
The Skirmish in the Triad is a sanctioned BJCP event and uses the 2008 BJCP style guidelines for judging. Entrants may send in an unlimited number of entries but are limited to one entry per sub-category. BBG reserves the right to combine style categories for judging and awards. All of the sub-categories of each category will be judged only with other subcategories of the same category. Categories will not be split among flights.
We are very excited to announce this year there is a chance for two Pro-Am collaborations. The highest scoring Belgian Golden or Dark Strong Ale will have the chance to brew their recipe with Gibbs Hundred Brewing Company and the Best Of Show Beer will be brewed at Pig Pounder Brewery The beer will be brewed on their commercial system and the winning brewer will participate in the brew day. Both Pig Pounder Brewery and Gibbs Hundred reserve the right to alter the recipe to fit their system and ingredient requirements.

You may have noticed that the site has been down for the last few days. The cause was an old, unsecured PHP script that was left on the site that allowed emails to be sent without verification. A nefarious user was able to access this script, and use it to send spam emails through our account. Our hosting provider detected the problem, and shut down the site to mitigate the damage. In order to ensure the site is as secure as possible, this script, and all other scripts from the previous version of the site have been removed. Due to this effort, some of the URLs for the site have changed to no longer require the "/joomla/" path. Please update your bookmarks accordingly. For those of you using Tapatalk, you will need to switch your devices to use the "Battleground Brewers" entry instead of the "Battleground Brewers (New)" entry. If you are watching the forums via RSS, you will want to update your bookmarks to http://battlegroundbrewers.com/index.php/forum/rss?format=feed.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the outage.
