2020 1st Quarter SOQ – American Porters and Stouts

Click here for the presentation from our January 13th club meeting for a talk on these styles by Steve Altimari from Highwater Brewing in Lodi!

For this SOQ we are going to brew the least-entered style in our 2019 World Cup of Beer: American Porters and Stouts. This comprises the following BJCP 2015 Style Guidelines:

  • 20A American Porter
  • 20B American Stout
  • 20C Imperial Stout (Our World Cup judges this alone in a separate category)

The entries for this SOQ will coincide with the 2020 World Cup of Beer (details to be announced) so that any entry in these styles by a BAM member will automatically qualify for our friendly SOQ competition. Expect the entries to be due sometime in March.

Entries will be due at OakBarrel as a simultaneous entry in the World Cup of Beer, date TBD. Be sure to indicate your club’s name on the entry sheet. Once all entries are scored in the World Cup competition, we will rank BAM beers as a subset for our normal prizes, noted in the rules page.
