  1. Homebrewers Only
  2. Homebrew entrys are FREE. Ignore the fees. We'll waive them.
  3. All homebrews are to be entered in Category 35A...NOT the style of beer they are. They will not be BJCP judged.
  4. They will ONLY be judged as Peoples Choice.  People entering the festival will receive one ticket that they can use to vote for your beer.  Near the end of the festival, all the tickets, i.e. votes, will be tabulated and winners will be chosen.
  5. The homebrewers will ALWAYS be free to enter their beer at our comps! Simply register your beers and we will mark your fees as PAID. Don't worry about it. But you probably didn't read this far anyway and will send me an email about it. Works out either way.
