Limbo Judging Starts tonight at Mike’s

This is a reminder that the 2022 Limbo Challenge judging starts tonight at Mike Grover’s house.

This is a request for judges for the Limbo Challenge judging this weekend. Please come out and support our competition. With a good turnout this weekend, we can probably finish in one weekend.

You need no judging experience. We will pair you with a skilled judge. Judging beer will help you brew better beer by teaching you how to evaluate what you brew.
We will have electronic or paper score sheets. We encourage you to use electronic sheets that require you to bring a wifi laptop or tablet. Wifi will be provided. Paper score sheets are available as well.

Please register yourself as a judge on the BCOEM system located here. You will use this userid to access the scoring system. Also please update your availability in BCOEM. Don’t worry if you don’t register in advance, we can add you when you arrive.

We will pair you with an experienced judge who will teach you about beer judging. It is actually a lot of fun.

If you do not have a wifi capable device, no worries, I can print paper scoresheets for you.

Please go ahead and register yourself as a judge in the BCOEM system (https://limbocomp.org/bcoem). Either register yourself as a judge or update your account to say you are a judge. In that process, please select the sessions that you are available to judge. This will make my job easier when we assign you to a table to be judged.

  • One session on Friday the 5th starting about 6:30pm
  • Two sessions on Saturday the 6th, 9am and 1pm
  • Two sessions on Sunday the 7th, 10am and 2pm

We will work on the next weekend depending on how much we get done in the first weekend.Right now all Tables are assigned to Friday the 5th. The tables will get assigned to other sessions when we see judge availability.
If you do not register as a judge beforehand, we can always assign you to a table when you arrive.
