The Mini-Comp is a joint WIZARDS / M4 club competition focusing on a single BJCP style. Each club holds their own mini-comp and the top two beers from each club advance to a best of show round. The best of show winner then gets to pick the style for a future mini-comp. Since the style is chosen three - six months in advance there is plenty of time to perfect your brew. Style talks are given several months prior to the competition to aid the brewer and sampling is done the before the mini-comp to aid the judge.  Judging is done at the club meetings using the BJCP scroresheet.

All club members are invited to take part in the mini-comp. The WIZARDS mini-comp is held at the February, May, August and November regularly scheduled club meetings. Entry fee is $5 with all proceeds going to the winner.
