This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Green Mountain Mashers homebrew competition.

This competition is BJCP sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.

All mailed entries must be received at the mailing location by the shipping deadline - please allow for shipping time.

All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of the drop-off deadline. All entries left at drop-off locations must have an entry label attached by rubber band only to each bottle and must be contained in a box or boxes which prevent the entries from being damaged in handling. Entries may not be dropped off in paper or plastic bags!! The proprietors of drop-off locations reserve the right to refuse entries which are not appropriately labeled and boxed. 

All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or operations, supplies, etc.).

The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The judges will assign a consensus score which is used to rank each entry in its category. We strive to make sure that each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers are limited to a maximum of one entry in each sub-category and 10 entries per person.

Green Mountain Mashers members get $1 off per entry when they use the password provided to them. Not a member? Go to to join and we'll send you the password.

The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style or sub-style they were originally entered in.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.

The awards ceremony will take place once judging is completed.

Places will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category or combined category (* see note at bottom).

The 1st place entry in each category or combined category (* see note at bottom) will advance to the Best of Show (BOS) round with a single, overall Best of Show beer selected.

Best of Show contenders will also be eligible for the Brewmaster's Cup. This award is co-sponsored by Vermont Pub & Brewery and Black Flannel Brewing Co. The winner will be chosen by representatives from each brewery and will have the chance to brew their recipe at Black Flannel Brewing Co.**

Additional prizes may be awarded to those winners present at the awards ceremony at the discretion of the competition organizers.

Both score sheets and awards will be available for pick up that night after the ceremony concludes. Awards not picked up will be mailed to award winners. Score sheets not picked up will be emailed back to participants. Results will be posted to the competition web site after the ceremony concludes.

* While entrants should utilize the categories and sub-categories specified in the pull down list on the entry page the organizers reserve the right to combine categories and/or sub-categories into "collapsed/combined" categories and award prizes based on them. Among other reasons the organizers may choose to do this in order to facilitate assignment of available judge resources. So, for example, categories such Czech Pale Lager and Czech Premium Pale Lager may be combined with German Pils and International Pale Lager with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes awarded based on this combined category.

** The brew date for the winner of the Brewmaster's Cup will be collectively determined by the winning homebrewer, Vermont Pub & Brewery and Black Flannel Brewing Co and will be based on a number of determining factors.
