All Beer entries must be in 10-12 oz. brown or green glass. No bottles with ink, name-brand lettering (i.e. Corona), or glued or taped on paper labels. Raised NO DEPOSIT, brand names, or manufacturing codes are acceptable. Beers must be capped with crown caps. Meads & Ciders may be entered in 6 to 12 oz bottles. Grolsch-type swing tops are acceptable for meads and ciders. No 22 ounce bombers, 750 ml bottles or plastic bottles are permitted. Bottles not meeting these requirements will be disqualified.
An entry consists of 3 bottles. If you choose to submit less than 3 bottles, you must mention the number of bottles in the comments when registering. Submitting two bottles will make the entry ineligible for Best of Show.
Both the pepper and beer base style should be present and not overpower one another. Balance is key! When placing your entry, you must specify the pepper variety in your entry so the judges know what to expect. For instance, if you enter a Jalapeno Lager, enter it as a Lager, then specify the pepper variety as Jalapeno.
ALL SUBMITTED BOTTLES BECOME THE PROPERTY OF DBG / PUBG.
NO ENTRIES OR BOTTLES WILL BE RETURNED.
Select your delivery location in REGGIE. This helps us find your entry.
Please ensure the entry labels are attached to the neck of each of your bottles with a rubber band. Please deliver your entries in a box or 6 pack holder to the delivery location you selected in REGGIE.
