10th Annual Bataille des Bières

The Dead Yeast Society announces their 10th Annual homebrew contest, Bataille des Bières. It is a BJCP Sanctioned Event, and is part of the Bayou Circuit.

We use the Brew Competition software for electronic registration of entries, judges and stewards. Please visit our competition site to register your entries and for more information on what styles are accepted, shipping & drop-off locations, important dates, and other contest info. (unlike ReggieBeer, Brew Competition logins are not used among multiple club contests. While you’ll have to register an account just for Bataille des Bières, it will be re-usable from year to year.)

Note, the registration fee is $8. Your beer will be judged in ‘beer clean’ glassware – not plastic cups!


Thanks to all who participated, entrants, judges, staff and stewards. It takes all of us to make a successful competition.

41 Beers and 5 Meads from 27 entrants (representing 15 home brew clubs from 14 States) were evaluated by 12 judges, supported by 8 stewards and staff.

Congratulations to the following winners!
