Thank you for your interest in the Black Friday Homebrew Competition organized by London Amateur Brewers, UBrew, Bermondsey, London.
You only need to register your information once and can return to this site to enter more brews or edit the brews you've entered. You can even pay your entry fees online if you wish.
There are 104 registered entries and 143 registered participants, judges, and stewards.
As of 22:58, there are 104 received and processed entries (this number will update as entries are picked up from drop-off locations and organized for judging).
The Black Friday Homebrewing Competition is a BCJP sanctioned competition where your darkest beers are assessed by qualified judges against current BJCP 2015 style guidelines. Score sheets and written feedback will be provided for each entry. Certificates and prizes are awarded for Best of Show places.
The competition is open to all beers which are black in colour - those intended to be in the 2015 BJCP Guidelines - Schwarzbier, Porters, Stouts, Black IPAs etc and any other black beer you have made in some categories we've made up.
After judging, remaining portions of the entries will be available for sampling on the evening of Black Friday, (24th November) at UBrew. UBrew will also have exciting commercial examples available for purchase on the night also. Entrants may bring further examples of their entries to share on the night.
It promises to be a great night where you can sample homebrew and commercial beers, learn from some experts and take home some malt and/or hops. What's not to like? It's better than shopping, we guarantee.

Entry Cost & Essentials
Entry fee is £6 (plus any PayPal handling fees) per entry.

How to Enter
Style and Award Categories
Styles will be grouped together to form judging flights of similar styles or strengths of beers and to form roughly equal numbers within each category where possible. Beers will be judged against the style guideline under which it was entered. The best beers of each style category within the flight will be judged to obtain the winners of the flight.
The 1st place entry in each grouping will advance to the Best of Show (BOS) round and receive a £10 voucher for use at Brew UK.
The competitions are non-profit. Funds from the competition are used to run the competition itself, including food provision for volunteers at the event. A small amount may be used to support the training of judges (for example to purchase off-flavour kits). Everything else is fed back as prizes or used to pay for up-front costs for the next competition. All the organisers and judges volunteer their time freely to support the homebrewing community.
