The concept was simple.  Any registered homebrew club
in Louisiana was invited to participate as a club.  If they
chose to participate, they were allowed to pick a style for the
competition with the limitation that it needed to be an ale.
5 clubs chose to participate.  The rules are as follows:

2800 Johnston Street
