Brewers must submit three bottles for each entry. Two may be entered, but the brewer must accept that he may not have an entry for “Best of Show” if a second bottle is needed for regular judging, (if he advances to that level or another bottle is needed for the Novice round). Bottles should be 10-16 oz with all labels removed. Caps must be plain or blacked out. Any exceptions should be brought to the attention of the competition coordinators BEFORE they are entered. Neither swing-top nor corked bottles will be accepted.
The deadline for entries is Saturday, November 5, 2011. The deadline has been extended to Nov 11th due to the wide spread power outages. Beers received after this will not be judged nor returned to the brewer. Please call or email for details. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS!
Judges and Stewards: Judges and Stewards are needed for the competition. Competitions can only function well with participation of BJCP judges. To ensure a successful event, we will depend on your support.
Judges and Stewards must report to the judging site no later than 9:00 am. JUDGING WILL START PROMPTLY AT 9:30 AM. BEST OF SHOW / BREWER’S CHOICE TO FOLLOW.
THE PUBLIC IS NOT INVITED TO VIEW THE JUDGING PROCESS BUT MAY ATTEND THE BEST OF SHOW ROUND AND AWARDS CEREMONY
An awards ceremony will follow the judging. (approx 3:00 pm).
We appreciate and thank the professional brewers who can attend to act as judges. Most if not all were once homebrewers who took the chance and went pro.
Morning coffee, bagels and doughnuts will be provided for the judges and stewards. There will also be a special mid-day lunch prepared by the staff of the Cambridge House Brew Pub.
