This a homebrew competition - so no commercial brews please (this includes beer brewed on equipment for commercial research, production, brew-on-premises establishments, or anything of that nature). You know what we mean - this is all about homebrew! All-grain brews, beer from kits, and extract methods are all welcome.
All decisions by the competition organizers are final. Entries will be judged between June 10-13, 2023. Results will also be posted on our website shortly after the event.
Entry Acceptance Rules
Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 3
ENTRY GUIDELINES: The deadline for receiving entries and fee payment is 16:00 on November 24, 2023
Submit 6 bottles of homebrewed beer (2 of each style)
Each entry will consist of 300ml to 500ml capped bottles or corked bottles that are void of ALL identifying information, including any writing or labels. Printed caps are allowed, but must be blacked out completely. 341ml brown glass bottles are preferred; however, green and clear glass or PET bottles will be accepted. Swing top bottles holding 500ml or less will likewise be accepted as well as corked bottles of the same size. 650ml bomber style bottles are also acceptable.
To each bottle, attach a completed BJCP bottle entry label using a rubber band (tape, adhesives or glue are unacceptable. Bottles that still have commercial beer labels will be disqualified. Furthermore, BJCP labels that are taped or glued on to the bottles may also be disqualified. The BJCP labels are removed from the bottles when we sort the entries, and removing tape and adhesives is time consuming). BJCP labels, in pdf format, are available on the entry page on this site.
The entry fee is $8.33 per entry (3 entries required). Fees can be paid by PayPal only as this allows the software to mark your entries as paid.
