2021 Blowoff Homebrew Competition

We have reached the maximum number of entries and virtual judging has begin!

Disjobel Fruit Purees is sponsoring the Fruit and Spiced beer category this year! They will be sending a 4.4lb bag of puree to the gold, silver and bronze medal winners of that combined category. They are also donating a bag to each of the Judges. 

A big ‘thank you’ to Coastal Karma Brewing for hosting our sorting day as well.

Judging is online this year, through Reggie. More details to come, but each judge will have to pick up their flights. We are looking into railroading entries to the Treasure Coast and Ft. Lauderdale, so don’t be shy! Enter as a judge!

We are ONLY accepting beer this year. No ciders or meads! If you send us a cider or mead, we will still drink them, but you won’t get scored.

The Hurricane Blowoff Competition is open to all home brewers.  No commercial entries or entries brewed at a commercial establishment will be accepted.

How to Enter
Each entry will consist of three (3), 10 to 16 ounce bottles, which must be brown or green colored glass only.  All bottles must be free of ink name-brand lettering, and paper labels. Raised “NO DEPOSIT”, or manufacturing codes are acceptable, as are Sam Adams-style bottles which contain minimal raised glass. Bottle caps must be blacked out to eliminate any identifying markings or graphics. Grolsch-type or swing top bottles are not eligible. Bottles not meeting these requirements may be disqualified. If you have any questions about bottle eligibility, please contact Michael Alexios at : mike at alexios.com.

Entries will be accepted starting on March 1 and must be received by 5 pm on March 26th. The entry fee is $8 per entry, payable via PayPal. You will have the opportunity to pay once you enter your beers through ReggieBeer (LINK TO COME) Do not send checks or cash. A completed entry form must accompany every entry. Attach a completed bottle ID form to each bottle with a rubber band only. Glued or taped ID forms will not be accepted and those entries will be disqualified.

All 2015 BJCP beer, (NO MEAD OR CIDER) categories and associated sub-categories will be accepted in this competition.  Each entrant is responsible for placing his or her entries in the proper category-we are not mind readers (though we wish we were!).  Be sure to select the correct category number and sub-category letter on your entry and bottle ID forms. All entries will be judged according to your information and classifications listed on your forms and failure to supply a fully completed entry form may result in the entry being judged in the wrong category/subcategory.  The Palm Beach Draughtsmen reserve the right to combine categories depending on number of entries.  Visit the BJCP @ www.bjcp.org, for a copy of the current Style Guidelines and for additional style information.  First, Second, and Third place medals will be awarded for each category.
