This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any Nebraska Home Brewing Club.

1. Club Round:
Entries will be submitted to your local club first -- each club will judge their entries and choose which beers will advance into the Shoot-Out Competition.
Each club may enter TWO beers per Category, plus 2 beers for BDB. 
Refer to your homebrew club for your local judging session date & time.

2. Shootout Round:
Submit (2) 12oz unmarked bottles per entry, with a BJCP Entry Form attached to each bottle by rubber bands only. (No tape please)

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.

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.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
