The Rules for Year 3

  • The total score for each brewer is made up of their best valid score in each BJCP category
  • Scores are held in the table for 12 months after which they expire
  • Only scores of 20 points or more are included
  • First place in a category scores 15 bonus points, second place scores 10 bonus points, third place scores 5 bonus points
  • Only your best 12 scores (including any position bonus) will contribute to your total
  • Brewers can present a maximum of 6 brews per event
  • Year 3 is a series of 6 judging events between April 2019 and March 2020
  • In the event of a tie, the following criteria will be used in this order to find an unique winner
    • Highest score excluding medal bonus points
    • Number of Golds
    • Number of Silvers
    • Number of Bronzes
    • Lowest number of beers shown in the Qualifying entries list
    • Organiser's discretion

If you wish to enter a beer to be judged, this can be presented to League of Brewers at any time. Entry is free.

You must label your bottle with the following information:

  • Your name
  • The beer name
  • The BJCP Category for the beer to be judged in
  • The ABV of the beer

You must supply one bottle of beer per entry. All entrants will have their BJCP Scorecard made available to them after the event, to help you understand how your beer was judged and what to do to make the beer better next time.

If you are going to ship your entries to the shop, please arrange delivery to:

Prizes

The highest scoring beer at each judging event gets a coveted League of Brewers T-shirt, and we also scout every judging event for beers we want to commercially brew collaboratively with the brewer.

Congratulations to our 2018/2019 winners!
