Rules and Policies

  1. Judging, Storage, and Handling

    We will store entries upon receipt in a large commercial refrigerator to minimize character changes. 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. 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 (BJCP Categories 1-28). All decisions of the judges, competition staff, and organizer will be final, without exception.

  3. Scores, Score Sheets, and Prizes Delivery

    This year we will announce the winners and BOS at an Awards Banquet. Medals will be handed as well as scores sheets and prizes.

    We will strive to post the results on the FOAM website ( as soon as possible, and no later than the Monday after final judging. Tulsa area entries can collect score sheets in person at High Gravity the following Saturday after the competition. We will ship score sheets and prizes to all non-local entrants via U.S. Mail or other common carrier the week after the competition.
