November 12th 8:30 – 4pm.
We are aiming to have 64 brewers competing. Each brewer is required to submit 3 beers of different styles (2 12oz bottles of each, 6 12oz bottles total). There are no style restrictions, and contestants are encouraged to show their range of skill and knowledge. The brewer will decide in which order the beers will be judged. There are three rounds of competition, followed by a final round. This tournament is elimination style.
Each brewer will decide which beer will be judged in which round of competition (1, 2, or 3). One bottle will be judged in each round of competition. Judges will compare the beers according to their style guidelines. If the brewer makes it to the final round, all three beers will be submitted to be judged by the O’Connor brewing team.
When you register for this tournament, your name and email address will be recorded. As we get closer to the event I will be getting in contact with you to ask about the beers your are submitting, if you will be attending the event, and if you wish to participate as a judge.
