Rules

The Dominion Cup is the homebrew competition hosted by the James River Homebrewers every year. Although this competition has traditionally been quite large, we decided that due to the challenges faced in the two years, that we would focus on a smaller quality competition than trying to do something as large. As a result, there are some things that are different this year, so please read the rules carefully.

We plan to do in-person judging again for both First Round and Best of Show this year. We will continue to take precautions and ask that those volunteering abide by all safe precautions as specified by the competition coordinator.

We are limiting the total entries to 400. We will return to requiring 2 bottles per entry. The cost per entry is still $10. Note that you must pay for your entry in order to reserve your spot.

All entries should be in 12 oz brown glass bottles, however green and clear glass will be accepted. We cannot accept larger bottles or swing-type caps due to the need to have uniform storage for the beers. We will also accept cans this year as long as there are no identifying marks on the cans and they take up the same space as a 12 oz bottle.

Exception: Mead and Cider ONLY may also use up to 750mL wine bottles in addition to the above.

The competition will be open to all Beer Styles, as well as Mead and Cider from the 2015 BJCP Guidelines.

Winners will be announced on the website and through social media after the Best of Show round is complete. Score sheets will be scanned into the website, but will not be delivered in person unless picked up during the competition final round.
