This competition is AHA sanctioned, part of the Lonestar Circuit, and open to any amateur homebrewer.

Please read the rules carefully, as there are differences from past years.

This year we will be limiting the number of entries to 500 total entries, with a limit for individual brewer entries to 8 entries per brewer/team. Brewers are limited to one entry per a subcategory.

Also, this year we will be accepting beer entries only. There will be no mead or cider as part of the competition this year, and no 34A clone beers. We apologize to those who specialize in mead and cider. It is our goal to build up our judging base to bring this back in the near future.

All shipped and drop-off entries must received at the shipping location by the entry deadline, Sunday April 14th at 4:00 pm. - please allow for shipping time. Sorting will take place at a TBD time and place during the week following this deadline.

Winners will not be announced until the award ceremony on June 22, 2024. The website will update shortly after. Please also subscribe to our YouTube channel for any broadcast of the event and awards at

Please submit 3 bottles per entry.

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. Shipping early may allow for notification of shipping damages so that a new entry can be supplied.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry and provide a scoresheet with feedback. At least 1 certified BJCP judge will be assigned to each flight (more when possible).

The competition committee reserves the right to combine 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. Categories with less than 6 paid entries will be combined with a compatible category in order to comply with the Lone Star Circuit guidelines for points.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel with each of the gold medal winning beers (assuming a 3rd bottle is provided).
