Thank you for your interest in the London And South East Craft Brewing Competition 2017 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.
There are 304 registered entries and 159 registered participants, judges, and stewards.
As of 23:06, there are 0 received and processed entries (this number will update as entries are picked up from drop-off locations and organized for judging).
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.
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.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided for staff, stewards and judges.
1. Register yourself on this site via the Registration page, Enter your beer(s) into the correct category and pay the fee via PayPal using the My Info and Entries Info page of this site. 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. Last date for registration/entries/payment is 30 March 2017. Your entries must be named and categorised correctly by this date. No subsequent changes can be made, the system is locked down to allow for preparation for judging.
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.
We do produce a festival program and feel it is useful to include the ABV, so please enter ABV for each beer.
2. Label each of your beers as per the Bottle Acceptance Rules in the Entry Info page of this site.
3. Package your entries and then drop off or ship your entry to the drop off location of your choice.
Drop at, or ship to, the designated site(s) to arrive NO EARLIER THAN 17 April 2017 than the 17 April 2017 and NO LATER than 28 April 2017 at Fourpure.
4. 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.
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.
