Rules

WELCOME TO ‘BREW CON WORLD SERIES IV’

The Brew Con World Series IV will be the official home brew competition of Brew Con London '20, the UK’s first conference and expo entirely dedicated to beer & home brewing.

This competition is BJCP sanctioned and open to any amateur home brewer age 18 or older. All styles will be accepted with the proviso that each entry must be made using hobbyist equipment by amateur brewers. The limit of beers for the competition will be 400 entries, with four entries per brewer allowed.

NEW RULE - This year we will only be allowing homebrewers from within the United Kingdom to enter the World Series IV. This is simply because the emerging UK Homebrewers Association is organising a "Homebrew Masters" competition that the World Series IV, alongside other UK competitions, will provide entry positions for. Any entries from outside the UK will be informed of the new rule and removed from the system.

JUDGING

Judging will take place across 5th - 7th March 2021 

All judges will be compensated for their time with entry to a session of BREW CON London '20 for every session of judging. Judging places will be limited so please sign up and state your availability ASAP if you wish to join us. 

Beers will also be award points for finishing in the top 4 of their category + HMs which will contribute towards each individual brewers 'Brew Con Champion Brewer' score (6 for 1st, 4 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 2 for 4th, 1 for an Honourable Mention).
