Bottle Entry Requirement
For each entry you submit, we require two 12-oz bottles of your beer, mead or cider.
Please note: If you wish to enter the same batch of beer in a regular base style and also in this year’s Theme Category (TBA), we will require four 12-oz. bottles total. These two categories will be judged separately, possibly at different times, therefore please send two bottles for each entry, registered separately.
Extra bottles are not required for categories with “Scale-Up contests,” as the specialty entry tasting will take place at the same time as Best Of Show judging and the same entry bottle will be shared between both judging tables.
Bottles should be free of any identifying information (no stickers, handwriting, labels, etc.). Bottles with raised embossing (Sam Adams, etc.) are permitted. Gold, silver or black caps are preferred, but colored caps will not be disqualified. If your caps have any kind of lettering or design, please black them out completely with permanent black ink.
We are accepting entries in all categories – Beer, Cider and Mead – using the 2015 BJCP Beer, Mead, and Cider style guidelines.
We will provide feedback using standard, written BJCP Scoresheets.
Each brewer may submit only ONE (1) entry per sub-category in any category.
You may enter as many sub-categories as you would like.
Specialty Category: What is juice?
This category for 2022 is for the best expression/usage of fruit. It must contain real fruit or fruit puree.
