1ST ANNUAL LOUISIANA STATE HOMEBREW COMPETITION!

Big thanks to Jeremy (AKA The Beer Buddha) for bringing this to my attention!  It appears that Aaron over at Brewstock is organizing a large homebrew competition for Louisiana and neighboring states.  Awesome!  I'll be certain to enter a few of my beers and I'm sure most of the Brasseurs A La Maison club will as well.  

Here are the details:

COMING THIS NOVEMBER 2013!

We'll be organizing beer and brewing events including tastings, dinners, competitions and more!
Start planning or brewing your beers now. The competition and events will take place in New Orleans, though you will not need to be present to compete.
Some things we have in mind

Prizes from sponsors will also be awarded.
The competition will be open to residents of Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Arkansas only.
Judging will take place over the course of a weekend in November, to be determined.
