Entry Acceptance Rules

Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 2

Entry fees will be $5 CAD per entry. Since our total entry cap is tied to the number of paid entries, only PayPal will be accepted for this competition.

When registering entries, make sure to follow the entry instructions (if specified) that are specified in the 2015 BJCP Beer Guidelines (Cider, Mead). Failure to note key information may impact the judges’ scoring of your entry. However also keep in mind that too much information can also be detrimental.

Bottle Acceptance Guidelines
Each entry should consist of two 12 oz brown glass bottles. Bottles must be void of all identifying information, especially commercial/home-made labels. Any marked caps must be blacked out. A Bottle ID form must then be attached to each bottle by elastic band (NO tape please).

Bottle ID labels can be printed by clicking the print icon next to each of your entries on the “Account” -> “Entries” page. Recipe sheets and PayPal receipts are not required. Bottles will not be returned to contest entrants.

12 oz (~355 mL) brown bottles are strongly preferred; however we will also accept green/clear glass/cans/PET, sizes up to 22 oz, and corked/swingtop bottles, if necessary.
