**********IMPORTANT WARNING*********

Domras Cup will be open for all entries 11/15/2023. Any entries entered before this date are subject to removal and disqualification as we set up the competition site for optimal performance.

Yes we have temporarily raised the entry fee to $999 while we work through getting the site set up and ready for 11/15 open. The last couple of years swarms of people entered their entries early before we were fully set up and ready to go. Since the BCEOM site won’t allow us to open it and lock entries via password during this time the SBL determined that temporary raising the entry fee to $999 should help keep early entries from being registered. On 11/15 it will drop back down to $12 as usual.


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

If you registered at last year, your same email address and password are still actively registered in our system.

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 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.
