Packing and Shipping

Write clearly: Fragile. This Side Up. on the package. Please only use bubble wrap as your packing material.

Enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles. This way it makes it possible for the organizer to identify specifically which entry has broken if there is damage during shipment.

Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles.

Awards

The awards ceremony will take place once judging is completed.

Places will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category or combined category (* see note at bottom).

The 1st place entry in each category or combined category (* see note at bottom) will advance to the Best of Show (BOS) round with a single, overall Best of Show beer selected.

Best of Show contenders will also be eligible for the Brewmaster's Cup. This award is co-sponsored by Vermont Pub & Brewery and Black Flannel Brewing Co. The winner will be chosen by representatives from each brewery and will have the chance to brew their recipe at Black Flannel Brewing Co.**

Additional prizes may be awarded to those winners present at the awards ceremony at the discretion of the competition organizers.

Both score sheets and awards will be available for pick up that night after the ceremony concludes. Awards not picked up will be mailed to award winners. Score sheets not picked up will be emailed back to participants. Results will be posted to the competition web site after the ceremony concludes.

* While entrants should utilize the categories and sub-categories specified in the pull down list on the entry page the organizers reserve the right to combine categories and/or sub-categories into "collapsed/combined" categories and award prizes based on them. Among other reasons the organizers may choose to do this in order to facilitate assignment of available judge resources. So, for example, categories such Czech Pale Lager and Czech Premium Pale Lager may be combined with German Pils and International Pale Lager with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes awarded based on this combined category.

** The brew date for the winner of the Brewmaster's Cup will be collectively determined by the winning homebrewer, Vermont Pub & Brewery and Black Flannel Brewing Co and will be based on a number of determining factors.
