The Rules

  • The total score for each brewer is made up of their best valid score in each BJCP category
  • Scores are held in the table for 12 months after which they expire
  • Only scores of 20 points or more are included, unless a brewer tells us they wish to have a lower score included
  • First place in a category scores 15 bonus points, second place scores 10 bonus points, third place scores 5 bonus points
  • NEW: From May 2018 onwards, only your best 12 scores (including any position bonus) will contribute to your total

If you wish to enter a beer to be judged, this can be presented to League of Brewers at any time. Entry is free.

You must label your bottle with the following information:

  • Your name
  • The beer name
  • The BJCP Category for the beer to be judged in
  • The ABV of the beer

You must supply one bottle of beer. All entrants will have their BJCP Scorecard made available to them after the event, to help you understand how your beer was judged and what to do to make the beer better next time.

Judging will take place roughly every two months. Sign up for the League of Brewers email newsletter at the bottom of this page to find out the cut-off for the next judging event.

The next event will be on the 20th October, and all beers received by the 18th October will be judged at this event. Tickets to the judging event are available through our online shop.

Prizes

We are busy securing more prizes for the next awards, which will be announced at the end of the 2018/2019 season around April time.

The highest scoring beer at each judging event gets a coveted League of Brewers T-shirt, and we also scout every judging event for a beer we want to commercially brew collaboratively with the brewer.

Congratulations to our 2017/2018 winners!
