Boston NHC Round 1 Judging Postponed

To all entrants and volunteers for the Boston regional first round judging of the national homebrew competition,

As many of you have heard, the national organizers at the AHA have taken the difficult decision to postpone all activities related to the competition. Therefore, all of our scheduled judging sessions have been postponed as well. Most of us on the local organizing committee have entries in the competition and we’ve already put a lot of work into running it, so we are all disappointed that it has come to this.
The circumstances around the Covid-19 outbreak are developing fast so it is hard to say what the coming weeks will bring. For now, we are retaining all the entries pending more information from the AHA. We will keep all of you in the loop, and we appreciate your patience in this unprecedented situation.
Stay healthy, and remember to relax, don’t worry, and have a homebrew.
Matt Dirckx
Judge Coordinator, Boston NHC R1
President, Boston Wort Processors
