    Oh, I am so down for this… is there a limit on entries?


  2. beeractivist says:

    kvh – great question. Glad you are psyched to participate.

    I just called to shop to check on this and the answer was a tentative “no limit on entries.” It was tentative because the manager is out hiking at Big Sur today and the worker-member answering the phone didn’t want to say for sure without double-checking, but he couldn’t think of any reason why there’d be a limit. He also said that there’d be a more complete “rules and regs” section on the site soon. If I were you I’d feel confident submitting as many beers as you want. How many were you actually thinking, 10, 20 different beers? I hope so! I just wish I was going to be in Santa Cruz for the judging!


    P.S. I’ll post a notice on the blog if I learn of any change that would affect your devious plan of winning by sheer volume of entries.

    Totally –

    Perhaps if you’re up in Baltimore between now and the deadline, you could give me an inside opinion on what you think should go – with any luck I’ll have a few choices…. I was hoping to send in maybe 3 or 4. That’s about as much as I can hedge my bets I think.

    It should come as no surprise, then, that Pinterest is fast becoming
    a top social networking tool. If you like something from other people’s board you
    can “re-pin” it to your own. It’s not always easy, but if the material is for something truly important, it’s the wisest step to take.
