Details:  All beer styles are welcome! This contest will be two-fold: 1) A People’s Choice popular vote with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, and 2) A Best of Show judged by BJCP-certified judges, certified Cicerones and professional brewers. All entered beers will be used for each part of the contest. Judges will give you competition feedback on your beer regardless of placement. Best of Show pro-judged beers will also have 2nd and 3rd place with the grand prize of brewing your winning beer on Joyride’s 10 bbl system and beer served in their taproom

The people’s choice portion will be determined by the greatest number of votes given by the tasting public. Each voter will pay $5, receive a commemorative tasting glass and voting card. Entry allows one sample of each beer and the crowd favorite will be determined by the greatest number of votes. Voters can taste beers in any order. 

All proceeds to benefit Edgewater Collective’s work promoting “Thriving Schools,Thriving Community”

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.
