BE SURE TO READ ALL RULES AND INFO!!!
This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.
The competition will be limited to the first 250 entries. There is no limit per individual entries.
All entries become the property of the Salt City Brew Club. Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or Brew on Premises operations, supplies, etc.).
Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once. For example, participants may enter a Belgian Pale (16B) and Belgian Saison (16C), but may not enter two Saisons, even if they are different brews.
The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged. All efforts will be utilitized to try to rectify any situation in a timely fashion.
All mailed entries must be received at the mailing locations by the entry deadline - please allow for shipping time!
All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day after the entry deadline unless otherwise noted.
Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry based on the BJCP 2015 guidelines. Each flight will have at least one recognized or higher level BJCP judge.
*NEW this year - New England IPA category! For those cloudy IPA's that won't fit category 21B. Enter in 36A.
*NEW this year - Best Of Show winner (or alternative) will have their recipe scaled up at Willowrock Brewing Co. in Syracuse, NY. No barrel aged beers and kettle sours only. All other BJCP category beers are possible.
The competition committee reserves the right to combine style categories for judging and to restructure awards as needed based on number of entries. All possible efforts will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.
The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners of all flights with a minimum score of 32. In large categories where entries are split into more than one flight, a mini best of flights will determine which entry moves to the best of show round.
Fee will be $8 per entry. Entrant is responsible for fees associated with using the paypal service. Ensure you return to the competition website after paying with Paypal by pressing "RETURN TO MERCHANT" tab at bottom of confirmation page.
