Rules

*** PLEASE READ THIS ***

Entries dropped off at the drop off locations shall be in sealed boxes. The drop off locations have been instructed to not take your entries in six pack holders. If you somehow get the drop off location to take your entries in a six pack holder, we will disqualify your entries at login. You have been warned.

*** END OF PLEASE READ THIS ***

We are using Paypal exclusively this year. The system is set to pay before print so you will need to pay your fees before you can print your entry sheets and bottle labels.

This is an American Homebrewers Association and BJCP-sanctioned competition. This contest is open to all amateur hombrewers and is restricted to non-commercial, home brewed beers. Items produced on the premises of commercial breweries, including brew-on-premises establishments, are not eligible.

The competition is open to styles of beer traditionally considered "session beers" and generally having an original gravity of 1.050 or less. Beer Judge Certification Program criteria will be used in judging the entries.

Entries are restricted to one per sub-category, with no limit for the overall category with this clarification: Fruit Beer is considered a sub-category. Fruit Beer & Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer and Other Smoked & Wood Aged Beer must be based on one of the other subcategories in the competition.

The overall competition is limiting entries to 300.

The spirit of this competition is session beers. We have included some sub-categories that have a possible OG larger than 1.050. If a beer is deemed to be larger than 1.050 OG, the organizer may exclude an entry from winning a medal. Please do not make us make that decision!

Packing Instructions:
If you desire to ship your entries, we recommend that you allow two inches of packing material between the borders of the box and your bottles. Fill spaces between the bottles with packing material (Styrofoam, ghost farts, etc). Wrapping each entry in bubble wrap is helpful. Enclose all entries in a plastic bag and seal the bag. Do not use the U.S. Mail -- it is illegal. UPS or other shippers may not accept your package if it is labeled "beer". You might list the contents as kitchen samples, yeast samples, yeast by-products, or homebrew supplies.
