Breweries must meet all eligibility requirements for participation, found here . Ineligible companies that register for the competition (including breweries in planning and/or breweries that are non-operational and open to the public as of November 14, 2023) will be disqualified without notice or refund of registration fees.

If your company is not eligible, you may cancel your entry prior to February 9, 2023 and receive a refund of your entry fees.

  3. Complete the specialty information section (if required by that category), by using the style builder fields or manually enter judging information, if required.
