    Entry Acceptance Rules

    Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 2

    Each entry will consist of two bottles, or cans, of between 330-500mL

    330mL or 500mL brown glass bottles are preferred; however, green and clear glass will be accepted. PET and swing top bottles will likewise be accepted.

    Bottles will not be returned to contest entrants.

    One bottle/can will be judged in the first round. A second, fresh, bottle will be judged if the beer progresses to Best of Show.

    Labelling Bottles and Cans

    Print out an entry label from this site and then attach to each bottle/can WITH CLEAR PACKING TAPE. 

    No other label or identifiable information should be present. All requisite paperwork must be submitted with each entry and can be printed directly from this website. 

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

    Entries not recieved by the shipping deadline date will not be entered into the competition. However we will endeavour to judge them at a later date and provided written feedback.

    Best of Show

    The Best of Show beer will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of a fresh bottle of the winning beer from each table.

    The panel members will be chosen on the day to ensure total anonymity of the entries is maintained.



    The awards ceremony will take place once judging is completed.

    Places will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category/table.

    The 1st place entry in each category will advance to the Best of Show (BOS) round with a single, overall Best of Show beer selected.

    Score sheets will be posted on the competition website within 48hours of the end of the competition. Results will be posted to the competition web site shortly after the awards ceremony concludes.
