Thank you for your interest in the True Brewer organized by True Grist.

You only need to register your information once and can return to this site to enter more brews or edit the brews you've entered.

Thanks and Good Luck To All Who Entered the True Brewer!

There are 26 registered entries and 35 registered participants, judges, and stewards.

As of 12:54 PM, there are 26 received and processed entries (this number will update as entries are picked up from drop-off locations and organized for judging).


This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any Full Member of True Grist.

All entries must be received by the deadline. More details to follow.

All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or Brew on Premises operations, supplies, etc.).

The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers limited to one entry, with that beer being the same beer entered in the advent event.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine overall style categories based on number of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.

Bottles may not be returned to entrants.
