Brewfest 2021 update: Our website is up and taking account registrations! Entries will be accepted starting 7/10/21 at 9am. Please follow this link Brewfest if you are interested in entering homebrews for the competition or volunteering to judge or steward. 🍻
We re-established the amount of entries we are accepting this year up to 200 entries. Bottles can be 12-22oz, and must be submitted with competition labels only and blank or blacked out caps, with 2 bottles per entrant submitted. Entries must arrive to Brewtensils by close of business on 09/05/2021. Entry fee is $8 per entry this year. Scoresheets will be released to entrants at the awards ceremony, and uploaded to the website following the competition. Only medals will be mailed, and we will only mail medals for winners in the contiguous 48 states.
*Judges and Stewards note*
Judges and Stewards must be able to arrive by 8:30am for check-in at Bock Family Brewing (8150 Washington Village Dr., Dayton OH 45458) on 09/11/2021. Light breakfast options (coffee, bagels, etc.) will be provided. Judging will start promptly at 9am with first round scheduled from 9am-11am, lunch from 11am-12pm, and second round from 12pm-2pm. This schedule may be flexible depending on flight size, though Bock Family Brewing typically opens for business at 2pm Saturday afternoons so we are trying to accommodate them as much as possible. There is available space separate from the main bar area that will be closed off and used for the Best of Show judging following the 2nd round. Lunch will be catered by the Drunken Waffle food truck. Please email the competition coordinator with any dietary restrictions that will need addressed.
