This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age nineteen (19) or older.

The Pro-Am GRAND PRIZE Winner from this competition will have the chance to have their become a 2018 seasonal release by Barnstormer during the Summer and Fall Sessions to The Beer Store [TBS]. 

First place will be awarded for every category via BJCP judging with prizing generously donated by our outstanding sponsors. BJCP judging will also determine Best-Of-Show recipients for AHA points. A GRAND PRIZE Winner will be determined by the brewing team at Barnstormer Brewing and Distilling Co.

All mailed entries must be received at the mailing location by the shipping deadline - please allow for shipping time.

All entries shipped to the specified drop-off location will be collected by 5:00PM on the final date of entry.

All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public. All entries must be made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e. no use of commercial facilities or brew-on-premises operations, supply stores, etc.).

The competition coordinators are not responsible for miscategorized entries, late entries or entries that arrive damaged due to mishandling during shipping.

The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine categories based on number of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered.

The Best-Of-Show judging will be determined by a Best-Of-Show panel based on a second judging of the top category winners.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
