All shipped entries must be **received** at the receiving location by the indicated deadlines—please allow for shipping time. All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of the drop-off deadline.
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 and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries. The competition committee reserves the right to combine overall style 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.
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. 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.
Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once **(EXCEPTION: Specialty IPAs may have more than one entry if each entry is of a different sub-sub-subcategory. For example, a Red IPA:21B4, and a New England IPA:21B7, may both be entered).**
