Rich and I are pleased to announce entries for the 2021 Canberra Brewers Club Competition are open. 

Judging: The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries or entries that arrived damaged.

Qualified judging of all entries is a primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry against style guidelines. The average of the scores will determine the rank of each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP qualified judge. The competition secretary will adjudicate on final scores and will manage any conflicts of interest that arise.

Entries: No more than two entries are allowed from each entrant in any single category (style). Within this rule, only one entry from an entrant is allowed in any sub-style. For example, an entrant can enter a maximum of two Pale Ale (Category 4) entries. These must be in different sub-styles, such as Cream Ale (Sub Style 4.1) and Australian Sparkling Ale (Sub-Style 4.5). 

All entries must be received at the drop-off locations by the entry deadline.

All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations on the day of the entry deadline.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants. Entrants can make arrangements with the competition secretary prior to judging if they wish to collect their bottles.

The competition is based upon the 2019 Australian Amateur Brewing Championship Style Guidelines and is a registered Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) event. 

Medals will be awarded for Gold, Silver and Bronze qualifying entries. These are defined by average scores from judging (out of possible max 50 points):

  • Gold 40+
  • Silver 35 - 39.9
  • Bronze 30 - 34.9
