As this is a home brew competition and festival only one bottle is certain to be judged.
The remainder will be available for sampling to all attendees after judging. This is a great learning opportunity for attendees and judges and we appreciate having enough of your beer for this rare experience to sample beers of one style category set out side by side, with good and excellent examples of the style flagged.
Bottles will not be returned. They can be collected at the end of the event, at 5PM.
We need one bottle per entry labelled for judging which must be free of all other labels and other identifying marks. Print out an entry label from this site and place in a plastic zip lock bag (for identification in case of shipping breakages) and then attach to the beer bottle with a rubber band only. Use your smallest bottles for the judging bottle.
The other bottles for the festival must be identifiable by name. They can be labelled with your own design including the name of the beer, or alternatively attach further labels printed from this site. There is a prize for best label.
An award will be given for the best label/clip design. Entries will gain points for originality, professionalism, and beer name.
