To Brewers: This is a rain or shine event; however, the competition and beer service we will under tents. You must register your beers by the stated deadline and please list your anticipated style(s). We know that could change, so no worries. Both kegged or bottled beers will be eligible, with 5 gallons minimum per beer. Brewers are responsible for their own transport, cooling and serving set up. Please arrive no later than 1:00 pm to set up. Not that you wouldn’t, but you are expected to pour your own beer and discuss it with participants. Get creative, lobby, sing, dance! One friend or co-brewer may help you serve the beer. They can sing and dance too. Wear a silly hat if you want.

Bottles or keg pours will be taken from entries for the Judge’s portion before the beginning of the people’s choice and may be combined in flights by style categories for ease. Hey, they’re the pros and giving us feedback, we should be nice to them. 

Please direct questions to Chris at contests@edgewaterfermentationsociety.com. Or you can call him at 720.352.7326
