About the webmaster and competition organizer.
I have been brewing since Labor Day (September) of 1990.
I am an avid homebrewer, starting out as an extract brewer Labor Day weekend of 1990. Then in January 1997 I moved to all-grain brewing with the help of my brother and friends.
Although I’d been judging since the early 90’s I passed the BJCP judge exam acquiring Certified judging status in 2005.
My first Draught Board meeting was in June of 1991. I’ve been a member ever since, including serving as president for 6 years. Shortly after joining the club, like most members, I was drafted into service for BABO (the Bay Area Brew Off).
- I started out as a steward and apprentice judge.
- My brother, Don, and I prepared and served lunch at the 1994 BABO at Lyon’s pub in Dublin California
- I became the competition registrar in 1996 receiving and recording all the bottles for each homebrew entry.
- I took over running the competition in 2005.
This website was created to better help me administer and run the competition.
Thank you for the interest,
Roger St. Denis.
