REGULAR CONTEST ENTRIES ARE DUE BY AUGUST 27th.
This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.
All mailed entries must received at the mailing location by the entry deadline - please allow for shipping time.
All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of or day after the entry deadline.
All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or Brew on Premises operations, supplies, etc.).
The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.
The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.
Qualified judging of all entries is a primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.
Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once, ie just one entry in 1A, and just one entry in 1B, and just one entry in 1C are allowed for a total of 3 entries, but you may not have 3 entries in 1A. More than one entry in a single subcategory (not allowed) will result in a penalty of the lowest scoring entry being recorded, but you will still get judging sheets and results for each beer.
The competition committee reserves the right to combine categories based on number of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.
The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.
Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
SUMMER BREW SPECIAL PRE-CONTEST
We will not disclose the winner of the Summer Brew category until all categories are judged in the finals, since the winner will be in the Best of Show.
