    i will be in the outdoor area setting up and having fun with people starting around noon or so on friday, but official entries etc. will not start being tested until maybe 12:30. we will definitely be there until 13:30 or maybe 14:00 since some participants are giving a talk at noon. real casual atmosphere... just come by and have fun!

    i will not stop a contestant from participating in whatever way makes them happiest... but since flavor is part of the game (remember... contraptions are supposed to be engineered in a way that doesn't produce an off-taste to the final beer) it will be harder to judge since non-alcoholic beers are often not outstanding.

    also, i can be in no way held responsible if passers-by call participants pussies or lightweights or any other shit should they be over 21 and not drinking at defcon.

    Over 21, no beer, but at Defcon? I think if you so that, a significant portion of the Universe will implode.

    I think an "open" beer may be a concern but if it is closed and you don't ask for money for it, hey. It's like asking your kid to get you a beer out of the fridge.

    underage participants are allowed. if you have anyone on your team who is of age, we can legally hand the beer to them... after it goes through the machine it's up to them what happens to it. we also will have some non-alcoholic beer available if a team has no members over 21. trust me, there's always a way to do just about anything... and participating in the BCCC is no exception. we'll make it happen for whomever shows up.

    as long as people keep enjoying it and wanting to show up, i'll keep running it. it's not like we need an excuse at defcon to pour lots of drinks in a huge coordinated effort... but i don't mind the concept.
