The Peach State Brew Off is the one of the oldest and largest AHA sanctioned competitions in the southeast. Our competition is open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older. The final judging session and awards ceremony will be on Saturday March 11, 2023.

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—please have them there early as we cannot guarantee pick up times.

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 Brew on Premises 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.

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.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine overall style categories based on number of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the 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.

People's Choice Award!

We are happy to brig back the People's Choice award this year. Kegs, bottles, or growlers allowed.

You must download, fill out, and attach an entry form to each entry. Download the form here. One form on each keg, growler, or box is sufficient.

Registration begins at the conclusion of judging/lunch time. Each person at the Peach State may vote, and winners will be announced along with winners of the other categories.

If you bring a keg, you must make arrangements for distribution (CO2, taps) as none will be provided. You are responsible for cleaning up any spills from your set up. We need to leave a clean space behind to assure we can do it again next year.
