Rules

The competition is open to any amateur homebrewer from the NT region. Please be aware if you registered in the last competition you will need to register again.

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 miscategorised entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category.

One 750ml or larger bottle/can or two 330ml or larger bottles/cans should be entered.

The competition organisers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine overall style categories based on the 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.
