All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of the entry deadline at noon.

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 BOS-Winner must be able to present recipe so that the beer can be produced by Scorpion Brewery.

The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

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.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants. No refunds will be issued.

Disclaimer: Disqualified beers may be judged but will not be eligible for awards. The judges may decide not to award all places in any category. The judge’s decisions are final. NO PRIZES WILL BE SHIPPED, they must be picked up at Scorpion Brewing Company.

Final round of judging: The top beer in each table/category will go onto the final Best of Show (BOS) round. BOS for Scorpion Homebrew Competition will take place live, March 18th at Scorpion Brewing Company.
