Thank you for your interest in the Stoney Creek Homebrewers Amateur Brewing Competition (SCH ABC) 13 organized by, Virtual.
You only need to register your information once and can return to this site to enter more brews or edit the brews you've entered. You can even pay your entry fees online if you wish.
If you are willing to judge or steward, please return to register on or after Wednesday, September 30, 2020 12:00 AM, EDT.
This will be a Virtual Competition in 2020. Logistics and details are being figured out as we go, so I thank you in advance for your patience.
We are currently capping the number of entries at 125. Because of a competition cap, we are further capping each participant to 8 entries. We are asking all participants to submit three (3) bottles per entry: 1 to each judge who is judging the flight and then 1 for a BOS judging round that will be organized as a small, socially distant event.
This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.
All mailed entries must be received at the mailing location by the shipping deadline - please allow for shipping time.
All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of the drop-off deadline.
All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or Brew on Premises operations, supplies, etc.).
The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.
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 overall style 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 in.
***We will be using the new scoresheets!! And the scoresheets will be writable PDFs.*** This is an FYI for both judges and entrants. To become more familair with the new scoresheets and how they differ, please use this website: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/from-the-director/2018-national-homebrew-competition-scoresheets/.
The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.
Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
