Thank you for your interest in the London And South East Craft Brewing Competition 2018 organized by London Amateur Brewers, Fourpure Brewing Company, Bermondsey, London.
You only need to register your information once and can return to this site to enter more brews or edit the brews you've entered. You can even pay your entry fees online if you wish.
488 entries have been added to the system as of 06:56, Wednesday 21 February, 2018.
To add your entries into the system, please proceed through the registration process or log in if you already have an account.
Eligibility: This competition is open to everyone, worldwide. Competition Organizers, staff, judges and stewards may enter the competition. Measures are in place to ensure fair, anonymous, judging. Judges and stewards will not be assigned to categories that they have entered. Entries must have been made at home. Those made in commercial establishments, including brew-on-premise establishments, are not eligible.
Entry fee is £10 (plus any PayPal handling fees) for the first beer entered. This includes entry to the awards ceremony and festival. Entry includes a festival glass for the first 140 paid entrants through the door.
Subsequent beer entries cost only £5.00 each (plus any pay pal handling fees).
PayPal handling fees are beyond our control. Paying for multiple entries in the same transaction may be cheaper than many individual transactions.
We need money to set up the competition and appreciate early payment, please pay as soon as you can. We expect payment by the end of March, but you can amend entries through to the closing date of 22 April.
Friends/supporters entry to the festival and awards ceremony is £10 cash on the door on the day. Entry includes a festival glass for the first 140 paid entrants through the door.
At the festival no charges are made for homebrew. No charge to fill your glass all afternoon.
Competitors are encouraged to come along and share your beers with your friends and fellow competitors.
Sampling many homebrews within a style category, with good and excellent examples clearly flagged is a great opportunity to learn about a style and how you can improve your brewing. With examples entered across nearly all styles it's also a great opportunity to explore the world of beer. You may well find a new style to try to brew.
Food will be provided for staff, stewards and judges at judging sessions.
There will be a pop-up food van at the Fourpure Tap Room.
1. Register yourself on this site via the Registration page.

For help selecting a category see the BJCP Style Guidelines 2015. The Judges and organisers will not reclassify entries so please choose styles carefully. E-mail the Competition Organiser if you need guidance.
You do not need to enter any recipe details, in fact only the style of beer is made available to the judges plus any special notes required for some styles. The system will force you to enter any required information.
3. Label each of your beers as per the Bottle Acceptance Rules in the Entry Info page of this site.
4. Package your entries and then drop off or ship your entry to the drop off location of your choice.
5. Come along in person on 20 May 2017 from 1pm to sample beers with your competitors and friends.
Styles will be grouped into beer categories/tables. Rosettes and prizes are awarded for the first 3 places in each category. A framed certificate is provided to the winner.
The winner of each category progresses to a Best of Show final. There are rosettes and prizes for the top 3 places in the Best of Show.
There is also an award for the best label/clip design. Entries will be judged on originality, quality, professionalism, and beer name.
A Champion Brewer will be decided with points being awarded for the top 5 places on each table - 10 for 1st, 9 for 2nd etc. The brewer with the most amount of points will win. Entries will be restricted toi 3 per brewer intially, but may be increased if spaces are available.
Styles will be grouped together to form judging flights. Beers will be judged against the style guideline under which it was entered. The best beers of each style category within the flight will be judged to obtain the winners of the flight.
The competitions are non-profit. Funds from the competition are used to run the competition itself, including food provision for volunteers at the event. A small amount may be used to support the training of judges (for example to purchase off-flavour kits). Everything else is fed back as prizes or used to pay for up-front costs for the next competition. All the organisers and judges volunteer their time freely to support the homebrewing community.
