The Bataille des Biѐres is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.

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.).

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 as needed depending upon the quantity 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.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The judges will determine by consensus, the rank of each entry in its category.

Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Your beers will be judged in 'beer clean' glassware - not plastic cups!!

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners from each award-category.

Entry Acceptance Rules

Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 3

Each entry will consist of THREE (3) capped, corked or swing-top 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. Bottles will not be returned to contest entrants.

Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once.

All shipped entries must be received at the receiving location by the indicated deadlines—please allow for shipping time.

All other entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of the drop-off deadline.

We reserve the right to refuse any late entry.
