Big Turkey Rules

Post by mikeroth » Fri Sep 07, 2018 9:43 am

I'm thinking about entering the competition this year, but don't know if there are any rules regarding color of bottle cap or other details I might need to know.

Where can I find out? I'm thinking about bottling this coming week so if bottle cap color is an issue, I'll need to know soon.

Thanks in advance for your help.

We're not too picky about bottle cap colors, but recommend that you use neutral colored ones if you have them. Here are the rules from previous years.


- You may enter one beer in each of the subcategories.
- Do not enter the same beer in different subcategories.
- You need two bottles of beer for each subcategory you enter.
- To keep things anonymous, use as plain a bottle as you can. Things like swing tops, labels, raised lettering, etc are not allowed in sanctioned competitions but will be allowed here if it is ALL you have as a last resort. Black out any markings on the cap.
- Judging will be using the standard BJCP judging sheets used at all the AHA competitions and styles will each be judged within their own subcategory. It‘s up to you to pick the subcategory you want your beer to be judged against.
- The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.
