2017 Competition News:
It's looking like this year's competition is going to be our largest ever!
We need judges and stewards! Priority is being given to BJCP mead certified judges and those completing the program, and to professional brewers. Brewers who have won prizes in previous Orpheus competitions are also welcome. Judging events for both are at very convenient Denver locations. If you're a glutton for wonderful mead, please register on both websites!
If you are interested and available to judge the Professional Division on Friday evening, September 8th, please register below for the Professional Division.
If you are interested and available to judge the Home Mead Maker Division on Saturday, September 9th (9am-4pm), please register below for the Home Mead Maker Division.
Prizes! Three of our competition entrants will receive a copy of "The Art of Mead Tasting & Food Pairing," generously gifted by author Chrissie Manion Zaerpoor! For more info about the book, go to www.meadandfood.com
