Rules

This competition is for the 2019 AABC National Championships.

This website provides the AABC Competition Guidelines and Rules to guide Australian Brewers in preparing and sending their entries. The Categories and Styles list to be used are AABC 2019 and Style guides are available from the AABC website.

D1. Qualification. The first three placegetters at State/Territory Championships automatically qualify for entry to the Australian Amateur Brewing Championship in the same year (see D8 for resolving tied scores). A maximum of three entries in any category will be accepted from each State/Territory.

Entrants may enter only those categories in which their placings were achieved. If the original beer is no longer available, entrants may submit a different beer in the same or a different style in that category. The beer style nominated must
be a designated style for the category, as listed on www.aabc.org.au. Organizers reserve the right to reclassify or disqualify non-conforming entries.

In the event that a qualifying entrant is unable to submit a beer in a particular category, State/Territory organizers may invite the next highest scoring entrant in that category to do so, in his/her own name, in order to fill the quota of three entries for AABC.

D2. Entries. No more than two entries are allowed from each entrant in any one Category.
Within this rule, no more than one entry is allowed in any one style. (This rule would normally be enforced in State/Territory Qualifying Championships.)

D3. Amateur brews. The competition is restricted to amateur brews, that is to beers not subject to excise duty. This means any beer not fermented on licensed brewing premises is eligible, including beers made using extract kits, wort kits, or any other source of fresh wort. Brew-On-Premises beers are ineligible as these are subject to excise duty. Entries must be submitted under the brewer's own name.

D4. One Qualifying Championship per Brewer. Entrants can only qualify from one State/Territory Qualifying Championship.

The entry fee shall be $10.00 per entry and must be paid beforehand via PayPal. Note PayPal charge a fee.  

All mailed entries must be received at the mailing location by the shipping deadline - please allow for shipping time. The competition organizers are not responsible for miscategorised entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.

The judging floor will be closed to all except judges, stewards and organizers.
