Upper Mississippi Mash-out Details

Homebrewers take note! Here’s the text of a note on the upcoming Upper Mississippi Mash-out. Aa lot of effort is put forth by local homebrewers to make this a great homebrew competition.

Registration for the 2010 Upper Mississippi Mash-out will open on December 28th and run until January 18th 2010.  There is still time to brew your award winning batch for this annual event.   Last year we took in 869 entries from 259 different brewers in 33 states.  Thanks to our generous sponsors over the years Mash-out has been able to provide a fabulous prize to every winner in each category along with a hand-made wooden chalice for the best-in-show winners for beer, mead, and cider.

The Mash-Out is the opening event in the High Plains Brewer of the Year Award 2010, the Midwest Brewer of the Year Award 2010 and the MCAB 2011.

Banquet and Awards Ceremony at Summit Brewery – Saturday, January 30th 2010

Every year we welcome judges and volunteers from all over the country.  We pamper them with specialty beers on tap, commemorative pint glasses, lunch and dinner during judging, and a commemorative beer brewed from the 2009 BOS recipe.  We will also feature speakers who will give presentations on brewing Scottish and English beers.  All skill levels are encouraged to volunteer.  This is an excellent opportunity to experience how an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition works.  Sign up to volunteer at

    Hi there, I’m a contestant in UMMO, and wanted to know if anyone will be blogging or tweeting the comp results rea-time like you did last year.
    Thought it was a great idea. Please do it again.
