Thank you for your interest in the Flat Rock Brew Comp organized by Flat Rock Brew Club, 290 Willoughby Road, Naremburn, NSW 2065.

Rules

This competition is BJCP sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 18 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 organisers are not responsible for entries entered into the wrong style, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The consensus of the scores will be users to rank each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers are not limited to the number of entries per category but may only enter each style once.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine overall style categories and reallocate prizes 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.

The Best of Show will be determined by a second round of judging of the cateogry winners.

Bottles and cans will not be returned to entrants.
