At the request of the River Valley Amateur Winemakers & Brewers Guild, 2016 Regional Competition host, please find this year’s classes.
As is customary, the host club may add to the core classes with some of their own. The River Valley club have chosen to split the citrus classes, include five different cider classes and include three different spirit classes. There are possibly a couple other additional I have not noted. Most of these are very straight forward but I encourage you to read the specifications.
The one addition that has no specification included on the class sheets is B13.1. This was promoted by River Valley at the recent Regional AGM. Through sponsorship to the regional competition from Hauraki Brewing Company, this class is anything with the inclusion of their Morgans Golden Saaz Pilsner kit. I have included the letter from Hauraki Brewing Company to tentatively serve as this class description.
The Regional Competition is slated for the weekend of November 11th with the social evening on the 12th, at Helensville Showgrounds. The Grand Hotel is approximately 200 metres down the road or you can camp at the grounds. There will be more details coming soon from the River Valley Club. I expect judging will take place on the 11th.
Please circulate this information amongst your clubs. I have blind copied in the Manukau members – We’ll be in to win!!
Feel free to contact me or the River Valley club directly if you need any information.
