Rules

**PLEASE READ: UPDATED 8/2/20**

Due to the evolving situation around COVID-19 we have made the decision to postpone BUZZ OFF until Spring 2021. This site will be updated when a new date is confirmed. Please ignore entry and drop off dates shown to the right - these are placeholders only.

If you have entered a beer or have signed up to be a judge or steward, we will be in touch directly with more information.

In the meantime, keep brewing! Cheers!

******

The BUZZ OFF is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.

All entries must be handcrafted products, made using private equipment by homebrewers -- no use of commercial facilities or brew-on-premises operations, no collaborations with professional brewers on production equipment ("pro-am" beers).

The 2015 edition of the BJCP Style Guidelines will be used to judge all entries. It is the brewer's responsibility to determine the correct category / subcategory in which to enter their beer(s), and to provide additional information where required. (The online entry forms will prompt you for all necessary information, such as special ingredients, style descriptors for meads and ciders, etc.) The BUZZ OFF is not responsible for beers entered in the wrong category, or missing information that would be useful to the judges.

Depending on the number of entries and category distribution, categories and subcategories may be combined or separated for judging and awards purposes. (Each beer is still judged against the style guidelines, not against other beers at the table.) These judging table breakdowns will not be available prior to the competition and will be determined by the competition committee once all of the entries have been processed.

Any deviation from the rules established here MUST be confirmed by the competition organizer and/or committee prior to the entry due date or else entries may be disqualified. This includes any exceptions that may have been allowed in prior BUZZ OFFs. If you have any questions about the rules for this competition please contact the organizer! We are not responsible if you fail to understand or follow the rules and your entries are judged inappropriately or disqualified.
