1 Completed Bottle ID Form per bottle, please use rubber band to attach if possible.
Drop-off Times and Locations:
Drop-off Start: February 26th, 10:00AM
Drop-off End/Deadline: March 9th, 9:00PM
Beer dropped off after deadline will be disqualified, cannot be returned, and will most likely be very much enjoyed!
Locations: We have 3 residential drop-off locations due to new legal restrictions regarding homebrew beer storage and rather strict interpretation of the law. If this is not possible, please also consider shipping to the addresses sent to you via the e-mail you provided for the Eventbrite Wort Share ticket. Please check your junk folder or email us for the drop off locations.
We need judges!
If you are at least a Recognized BJCP Certified Judge, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any interest in judging or stewarding. We will most likely have 3-5 flights, need 3-5 judges, and 3-5 stewards.
We look forward to tasting your beer,
