It's Over!The 2013 Mashout is over and the results are here!
This Year's ThemeThis years theme, since it's our twelfth anniversary, is The Dirty Dozen.
VolunteersFor you volunteers, and if you aren't one you really gotta get on board, the judging will be at Grumpys-Roseville again as its a great place with killer beer and food. We'll be doing a lot of the really cool stuff we always do...plus a few new angles. You'll be wined and dined like no other competition in the nation plus your standard commemorative beer and glass. We'll have luntime speakers, again, for your enjoyment. The massively popular Friday night Piss-up will be back and better than ever. This year we'll have a fancy glassware for a swap-O-rama. There will be a huge competition with blind beer tastings featuring newly released hops and as always, the ever awesome Cellar beer event will be the hallmark of the evening.
The BanquetThe banquet is always a great time. Last year we were full and seats, again, are sure to sell out quickly so get your tickets ASAP. You again get a commemorative glass, meal, beers and the debauchery that follows.
The AwardsBrand new this year: The Pour Choice award! This inaugural award will be given to the brewer of any gold medal winning beer that most embiggens all that is Pour Decisions Brewing Co. The winner will then be brewed at PDBC sometime in 2013!
The awards show starts immediately after the banquet and by immediately I mean as soon as we can. Anyone who entered or volunteered is welcome, including your +1's. Like last year we'll have a ginormous raffle which tickets can be purchased at the event. If you want some free raffle tickets each non-perishable food item brought in gets you one! We'll also have the silent auction which usually ends up not being silent as friends get passionate when bidding on neat stuff that you just can't buy...not easily anyway.
Giving BackOne of the most important parts of the UMMO for us is to give back as we donate all of our profits, sans working capital, to peoples in need. So that wraps up this longer than expected summary of all things UMMO 2012.
Our Wonderful SponsorsMost importantly, without our wonderful benefactors, none of this would be possible. Here's to all our wonderful partners!
This looks to be another awesome event,
