Rules

ATTENTION!     ATTENTION!     ATTENTION!     ATTENTION!

NO ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED ON DAY OF THE COMPETITION!!!

All entries must be received within the designated drop-off window dates/times at one of the designated drop-off locations.

Sorry for the inconvience this year to all our judges, stewards and volunteers.  Organizing has become increasingly more difficult over the years.  In order to maintain the integrity of this event we need all participant's entries to be received by the time the drop-off window ends.  Thank you for your cooperation.

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 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 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.

Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category or sub-category as long as the beers are from different brewing sessions.

Categories with a small number of entries may be combined at the discretion of the competition organizers. The Competition Coordinator or other qualified person will review elements of beer categories and styles with each panel prior to judging.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Blue Ribbon Panel based on a second judging of the top winners.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
