    Entry Acceptance Rules

    Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 3

    This comp is focused on Lagers and central european beer styles. Lagers, Kolsch, alt, hefe. If you are entering a specialty beer it must be one of these base styles. (And your fruited kolsch entries, if you must, must taste more like a kolsch and less like a american blonde ale, ok?)

    Each entry will consist of capped or corked bottles that are void of all identifying information, including labels and embossing. Printed caps are allowed, but must be blacked out completely.

    12oz brown glass bottles are preferred; however, green and clear glass will be accepted. Swing top bottles will likewise be accepted as well as corked bottles, cans, etc. 

    Bottles will not be returned to contest entrants.

    All requisite paperwork must be submitted with each entry and can be printed directly from this website. Entry paperwork should be attached to bottles by the method specified on the bottle label.

    Be meticulous about noting any special ingredients that must be specified. Failure to note such ingredients may impact the judges' scoring of your entry.

    Packing and Shipping

                Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Please do not over pack!

    Write clearly: Fragile. This Side Up. on the package. Please only use bubble wrap as your packing material.

    Enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles. This way it makes it possible for the organizer to identify specifically which entry has broken if there is damage during shipment.

    Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles.
