This competition is AHA/BJCP sanctioned and open to any homebrewer with an active GTA Brews membership. All entries must be made using private equipment in adherence to the homebrewing spirit (i.e., no commercial beer/mead/cider or help from Brew on Premises operations, etc.). Competition volunteers are encouraged to enter!
All entries must be received at the mailing/drop-off locations by the entry deadline. 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.
The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All entries in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.
Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate, score, and provide feedback on each entry. Each flight will have at least one BJCP ranked judge. The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.
This competition will accept Beer, Cider, and Mead from all categories listed in the 2015 BJCP Beer Guidelines (Cider, Mead). There is a limit of 1 entry per classic style subcategory (1-26, C1, M1), and 2 entries per specialty category (21B, 27-34, C2, M2-M4), provided they are different beers/ciders/meads. Each participant will be limited to 3 entries, with an overall competition limit of 100 total entries.
Scoresheets will available for download from the registration software promptly after the competition concludes.
