    Two Comments/Questions

    1)Rules indicate you can enter 2 historical styles if they are different but system is only allowing for 1.

    2)New Zealand pilsner is a new provisional style that should be located in the pale commonwealth category.

    Can these issues be fixed?

    Hi Cory,

    Thank you for your questions.

    1- We decided to only allow 1 historical style entry this year. This is new to 2018 for our competition. The rules have now been updated to reflect this decision and thank you for flagging that our rules were out of date. We typically receive few entries in the historical styles and wanted to keep this category balanced.

    2- We currently are not using the provisional styles as part of this competition. Your interest in the provisional styles will make us re-evaluate this decision. We may include them in the 2019 edition.

    Cheers,

    David Bard
    Competition Director 2018
