» Brewers are limited to two entries in each category but may only enter each subcategory once.

» One bottle/can per entry (500ml minimum - 750ml preferred ) 

» All entries must have labels attached. 

Labels can be printed directly from this website. After completing your registration print the label and ATTACH TO BOTTLE/CAN with sticky tape. 

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).

The competition organisers are not responsible for mis-categorised entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

The competition organisers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category. 

The competition committee reserves the right to combine categories based on number of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
