Thanks for the clarification. I guess I just always thought of brown ale as a singularly British style (except for Flanders Brown.) Not having any interest in becoming a BJCP judge, nor in brewing to any style, I never really paid much attention to the guidelines.

we need to pick 4 styles so I can send them to the redsticks by the end of the month, if we have over 4 styles to send I suggest we put them in a hat and draw to make it fair, I can not make the next meeting because of work so it must be brought up,

Mine go to Oatmeal Stout, and Hefe. I can almost guarantee that the redstick guys are going with a brown ale. Thats what one of their members won 1st at the dixie cup with. I'm not suggesting the one I won with since I know most people don't seem to like a Wit.

Maybe I vote for whatever my VBIP categorizes to.

We should discuss this at the next meeting,
I think we need to discuss the most democratic way of picking our catogories.
I'm all for pulling out of a hat, but we should make sure that the clubs insterests, as a whole, are being met.

Just my $.02

I'm not familiar with the BJCP guidelines as wellas the rest of you but I think the VBIP would probably fall into the specialty category. Come to think of it, maybe specialty category should be a choice. That pretty much encompasses everything that isn't covered by the other categories. Wide open with few to none commercial examples to go by.

making beer or making a living? Tough choice. Unfortunately making a living always trumps beer, but remember this: Homebrew will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no homebrew.
By the way, are you going to be here for the club brew on the first?

What happened to everyone's sense of humor? lighten up already, it was just a joke, though I sincerely hope you didn't get stuck with one of those horrible sub primes.
