Entry Acceptance Rules

Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 3

Each entry will consist of three (3) 12 to 22 oz capped bottles, three (3) 375 to 750 ml capped/corked bottles, or three 11 to 16.9 oz cans that are void of all identifying information, including labels and embossing.

12 oz brown glass bottles are preferred; however, green and clear glass will be accepted. Swing top bottles will likewise be accepted, but are not recommended.

12-16.9 oz cans are likewise permitted, provided each are void of all identifying information, including labels and embossing.

Bottles and cans will not be returned to entrants.

Remove or black out with permanent marker any identifying marks from bottle caps. Solid color bottle caps are acceptable - all other printed bottle caps must be completely blacked out.

Caps with identifiable markings that make them unique as determined by the Competition Organizer with visible symbols, writing, etching, coating, etc. will be disqualified.

Entry Labels

Entry labels must be printed directly from the this website and should be attached to bottles/cans as directed.

Entry Requirements

When adding your entry into the system, be meticulous about noting any special ingredients that must be specified per the 2021 BJCP Style Guidelines. Failure to note such ingredients may impact the judges' scoring of your entry.

All Entries Must Be Belgian- or French-Inspired

If a beer is entered into a subcategory that is not specifically Belgian- or French-inspired as defined by the BJCP 2021 Style Guidelines, entrants must provide further information as to why the entry is Belgian- or French-inspired (e.g., yeast selection, Belgian or French base style, etc.).

This applies especially to any entry in BJCP 2021 style categories 27 through 34 – SHV, Wood-Aged Beer, Historical Beer, Brett Beer, Experimental Beer, etc. If a beer entered into these categories does not specify the Belgian- or French-inspiration, base style, and/or if supporting information is insufficient, the entry will be judged, but it will be disqualified from medal contention.

Limitations

Entrants will be limited to six (6) entries until January 6, 2025. After that, we'll increase it to unlimited until the entry limit of 150 paid entries has been reached. This is to ensure that all who wish to enter have a fair shot to do so.

Entrants are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once (some subcategories allow two entries, see the Per Entrant Limits section). For example, participants may enter a Belgian Blonde and Belgian Saison but may not enter two Saisons, even if they are radically different brews. In other words, choose wisely.

Categories with a small number of entries may be combined at the discretion of the competition organizers. All entries in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.
