We are accepting entries in all categories – Beer, Cider, and Mead – using the 2008 BJCP Style Guidelines.
We will provide feedback using standard written BJCP Scoresheets, not the NHC checkbox sheets.
We will accept 402 entries this year — that’s the area code in most of Eastern Nebraska!
Entries are limited to (1) per Sub-Category per person in any category not listed below.
In order to open our event to those of you who get creative with styles, we have lifted the limit on entries in the specialty categories.
Come again? This means you are now able to enter as many beers as you want to in the Spice, Herb and Vegetable category so long as each of them is different and unique from each other!
The categories that are open to multiple entries include:
16E Belgian Specialty
17F Fruit Lambic
20 Fruit Beer
21A Spice Herb & Vegetable
21B Christmas/Winter Spice
22B Other Smoked Beer
22C Wood Aged Beer
23 Specialty Beer
25 Fruit Mead (ALL SUBCATEGORIES)
26 Other Mead (ALL SUBCATEGORIES)
