Rules and Policies

1. Judging, Storage, and Handling

We will try to minimize handling to avoid disturbing bottle-conditioned beers with natural sedimentation. Occasionally this is unavoidable and scores for appearance may reflect this.

2. Medals

All brewing category winners will receive custom-cast medallions for first, second, and third place in each style category. Judges are solely responsibility for determining whether an entry is deserving of a medal. The FOAM Cup Committee will combine or split categories and/or subcategories as necessary to maintain competition integrity. In general, we will require that there be at least six entries in a category before we award a full set of medals. We will award Best of Show (BOS) medals for beer and for mead. We will judge all beers, meads and ciders listed in the BJCP Styles Guidelines. All decisions of the judges, competition staff, and organizer will be final, without exception. 

3. Scores, Score Sheets, and Prize Delivery

Winners and BOS at an Awards Ceremony located at Pippin's Taproom at High Gravity. Medals will be handed as well as prizes for those in attendance.

Score sheets are judged digitally and will be posted on your account page after winners have been announced. We will ship medals and prizes to all non-local entrants via U.S. Post Office or other common carrier the week after the competition.
