RULES / GUIDELINES
GENERAL INFO
β€£ We will be having 4 competitions per year. Each competition will span 3 months, following the calendar quarters, with the deadline falling on the last day of each quarter.
β€£ Quarterly Competitions are fun, friendly, competitions focused on providing feedback to brewers and fostering the homebrew community! These are not competitive BJCP sanctioned competitions.
β€£ Q1: January - March, Q2: April - June, Q3: July - September, Q4: October - December.
β€£ Each quarter will be limited to specific categories and/or beer styles.
β€£ The current competition schedule will be listed above.

REGISTRATION & SUBMISSION
β€£ This is a free competition, there is no entry fee.
β€£ Each participant may enter up to 2 different beers.
β€£ All entries must be registered online and dropped off at Hop Craft by the last day of each quarter. (see schedule above for specific dates)
β€£ To register your beers, click the registration button for the active quarter, and fill out the form that follows.
β€£ Please attach a label to your beers with a rubber band, include your name and the name of the beer.
β€£ Please drop off at least 2 bottles of each beer for judging, and however many you would like for sampling at the awards / tasting event.
JUDGING
β€£ Beers are judged by professional commercial brewers and BJCP judges, Hop Craft employees are not involved in judging.
β€£ Using the BJCP scoresheet, beers will be judged based on aroma, appearance, flavor, mouthfeel, and overall impression. Feedback will be given for each of these categories.
β€£ Judges will work in pairs to evaluate beers.
β€£ During the first round of judging, each beer will receive a numerical score.
β€£ During the second round of judging, the highest scoring beers from each pair of judges in round one will be re-evaluated to determine the winners.
β€£ Prizes and medals will be awarded for first (gold), second (silver), and third (bronze).
β€£ Additional prizes will be awarded at the awards & tasting event for brewers choice, best name, and most creative recipe. Attendees will vote for these based on the beers they sample.
β€£ First place (gold) will brew their award winning recipe on a commercial brew system at the brewery hosting our awards & tasting event. The beer will then be on tap at that brewery and we will organize a tapping party when the beer is ready.

AWARDS & TASTING EVENT
β€£ We are currently re-evaluating our awards & tasting event to make sure we comply with current Covid restrictions. Please check back regularly.
