Rules

Please submit TWO bottles for each entry.  Attach entry forms to bottles with rubber bands only.   Any taped entry forms will be disqualified.  12 oz. brown bottles are preferred.  Please no swing top bottles.

ALL ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED AT A DROP OFF LOCATION BY THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2nd. **This includes judges and staff.**

There is no limit to the amount of entries each participant may enter.

This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.

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 the 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.

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.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
