Home Made Beer

1. Limit one bottle per style of beer.

2. Bottle should be plain brown with no label, with plain bottle cap, if possible.
3. Beer styles determined by the American Homebrewers Association’s (AHA) BJCP 2015 Revision of the 2008 Guidlines.  See their web site at http://www.bjcp.org/stylecenter.PHP for beer classifications (they now have a great mobile app named "BJCP 2015") or ask
the staff at Bader Beer and Wine Supply, or Steve Bader, 750-1551.
 
4. Beer style to be chosen by brewer for entry form should be one of the AHA styles, which the judges then use to determine criterion to judge your beer by.
 
5. Limit of six entries per household, each entry must be a different beer.
 
Bader Beer & Wine Supply will donate three $25 gift certificates for the three highest scoring beers.

Home Made Wine

Wine will be judged individually on their own merit. Bottle label and overall appearance of bottle is not judged. All wine entries must be clearly labeled.
The following information is required:
 
1. Type of wine (Blackberry, Apricot, Concord, Cabernet Sauvignon, etc.).
2. Year wine was made.
3. Dry, sweet or dessert wine.
 
Judges will use this information as a guideline to determine what standards to judge the wine by.
 
All entries will be opened and sampled. Remaining wine will be disposed. (We suggest entering a small bottle (375 ML) because of this.)
 
Only one bottle per entry, properly labeled.
 
Maximum of six entries per household, each entry must be a different wine.
 
Bader Beer & Wine Supply will donate three (3) $25 gift certificates to the three highest scoring wines.
