As always we will need experienced mead judges to help out (or even if you just want to get experience). Great mead-centric swag for volunteers/winners including honey from Savannah Bee Company and other items. Plus the colossal after-party and oyster roast is something not to be missed.

FYI, I couldn't wait and have opened up the entry registration early (mainly because I will likely imbibe too much to remember to open it on the 1st!). Entries accepted through Jan 23. As an added announcement, Michael Fairbrother of Moonlight Meadery will be in attendance at the event this year. Looking forward to a great time!

Why enter?
The cost is just $6 per entry. Any size bottle is acceptable (meads will be served “blind” by our experienced stewards). We know your mead is a precious thing. You can send any number of bottles you want, but we do recommend a minimum of one 750ml, two of anything smaller, and two if carbonated to ensure a fresh bottle for the BOS round. Ribbons and lots of great prizes from the Savannah Bee Company (can you say 100+ lbs of regional honey!), Redstone Meadery products, and Savannah Homebrew Shop will be provided to winners.

Why join us?
We can use certified judges and mead aficionados for judging and stewarding. We have a dozen local certified mead judges, but always need help. Each volunteer will get an etched Domras wine tasting glass and look for some of our new SBL “crimp-less” bottle openers to be available as well. Drawings for a door prize or two will be in order. Bagels, etc. will be available before we start and snacks in between. Immediately following judging, we hold our epic post-party and oyster roast that is a time not to be missed, so if interested in helping to judge or steward, please sign up on the registration page and come join us. We generally try to finish in one round though a few folks may have to do two small rounds. BOS should start by early afternoon.

At this point we don’t have plans for drop-off locations (except locally) where SBL club members deliver the entries. If entries are registered and paid for and at proper condition, however, we can accept the entries the morning of the competition if someone is planning to come judge from an area. We’ll leave that up to each club. Just let us know in advance about any special arrangements needed.
