Submission Guidelines

•   Submissions are due no earlier than 14 days prior to the event and no later than 7 days prior to the event.
•   Bottles need to be submitted with no labels in 12-16 oz. bottles with the submission form filled out to completion.
•   2 Bottles are required for the judged portion of the contest and an additional 4 bottles for the optional people’s choice portion of the event.

Homebrew competitions provide homebrewers with valuable feedback on their brews from trained beer judges.

While some homebrewers enter competitions to win awards, others enter to get an unbiased, objective analysis of their entry. Let’s face it, you may think your beer tastes great, and your friends may say it tastes pretty good, but how would an unbiased judge describe it in a blind tasting?

Ultimately, entering competitions will make you a better brewer. Judges’ feedback can give you information about your sanitation procedures, ingredients, brewing process, and/or your recipe formulation. You may even take home some ribbons or medals!

The day of the event we will have guest speakers, great beer, and even some food available.

Bring friends that may be interested in learning more about homebrewing.

Most Importantly - Bragging rights!
