ScHnoCToBeeRFesT FAQs 2011

When: Saturday,October 22, 2011
Meet & Greet your favorite beverage at 9 am, ride begins at 10 am
Entry fee- One or more six packs of beer, to enter in the buffet (categories below). The schwag this year will be ala carte (that's a french term meaning "if you want it, you have to pay"). There will be no other entry fee! Food will be served at the beer buffet after the ride & those of you who have attended previous events can attest to the delicious food that eDBiLLy & MeGBiLLy come up with.
Where- CiTy BiLLy World Headquarters, outside of Elkhorn, Nebraska.
For further information, I'll plagiarize myself, from 2010: Q: What, exactly, is this ride about?
A: Schnoctobeerfest is a bike & beer buffet. We start with a meet & greet, complete with drinks, & then, have a 50, or so, mile ride, followed by a feast, ending the festivities with a beer judging.

Q: Are you guys fast cyclists?
A: Some of us are fast & some of us were fast, once. The thing that is cool about CiTy BiLLy is that we can co-exist (especially when the fast guys don't know the course).

Q: How much is the entry fee?
A: For this ride, you have to bring a six pack of beer to enter in the competition. The categories are: best microbrew, best beer under $7 per six pack, best label art (believe me, eDBiLLy knows his art), best import, best domestic & wildcard. Some new rules this year- your six pack has to be all one style of beer (in the industry, we call it a sku). In other words, you can't bring a sampler six, and enter all your beers in the competition. The only exception (Please, Lee!) is if you bring beer you made yourself. Be prepared to sample a bunch of beers you've never tasted before!
Q: How do I throw my name in the hat for this classy shindig?
A: Contact eDLoNNiE. If you've never attended a CiTy BiLLy event, I'll send you a map. We love having new faces at our rides!
