GUIDELINES

We will be having 4 competitions per year (quarterly comps) which gives brewers about 3 months to brew.

Each competition will be limited to certain styles of beers to make the judging more competitive and ensure a bourbon barrel aged barleywine is not judged against a Kolsch or Pilsner

All beers will be judged and scored with the BJCP scoresheet, however, we will not disqualify beers that are not brewed to style. (This is for fun!)

1st, 2nd and 3rd place will receive prizes. Brewers will also vote for a brewers choice award. Prizes will change every quarter and more prizes may be added during each comp.

All brewers will be allowed to submit and enter two different brews for each competition. Please label your beers with your name and the name of the beer.

Please drop off 2 bottles of each beer for judging. For the awards ceremony / tasting event we recommend brewers bring 3 or 4 bottles to share.

If you can't attend the awards ceremony, feel free to drop off a couple extra bottles for the tasting and brewer's choice voting.
