THIS YEARS REGULAR CONTEST ENTRIES ARE DUE BY AUGUST 21, 2017. Precontest entries are due by July 21, 2017.

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.

The Belle City Brewers and Vintners would like to thank all the donors to the 2016 and previous events that have helped make it such a successful competition. Please remember them in your future purchase decisions!

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 must be paid for using Paypal.

All entries may 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.). NO Wort made in a licensed brewery may be used in this competition, such as in a wort give-away.

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.

Recipes are not required in order to enter. If you win you will be required to share your recipe with the brewery that will brew your beer.
