Entry Acceptance Rules

Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 3

PLEASE NOTE: BCOEM IS COPYING DESCRIPTIVE INFORMATION FROM YOUR FIRST ENTRY TO SUBSEQUENT ENTRIES.  THIS IS NOT OUR CODE AND WE HAVE NOT FOUND THE BUG AS YET.  PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR DESCRIPTIONS.

Each entry will consist of capped or corked bottles that are void of all identifying information, including labels and embossing. Printed caps are allowed, but must be blacked out completely.

THREE bottles are required. Each bottle must be a minimum of 10 ounces. 12oz glass beer bottles are preferred. We will accept whatever bottles you send as long as they meet the minimum requirements.

Bottles will not be returned to contest entrants.

All requisite paperwork must be submitted with each entry and can be printed directly from this website. Entry paperwork should be attached to bottles by the method specified on the bottle label.

Be meticulous about noting any special ingredients that must be specified. Failure to note such ingredients may impact the judges' scoring of your entry.

Entries may be disqualified if they contain illicit or unsafe ingredients.

Packing and Shipping

Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Please do not over pack!

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.

If you live in the United States, please note that it is illegal to ship your entries via the United States Postal Service (USPS). Private shipping companies have the right to refuse your shipment if they are informed that the package contains glass and/or alcoholic beverages. Be aware that entries mailed internationally are often required by customs to have proper documentation. These entries might be opened and/or returned to the shipper by customs officials at their discretion. It is solely your responsibility to follow all applicable laws and regulations.
