Rules

Formerly named the London and South East Craft Brewing Competition, the LAB Open Competition and festival is a BJCP sanctioned competition where your homebrewed beers are assessed by qualified judges against current style guidelines.

Score sheets and written feedback are provided on each entry. Rosettes, certificates and prizes  are awarded in each of 13 (or more) category groupings and for Best of Show places.


The beers are made available to sample and discuss with fellow competitors and friends in a festival-type setting on the afternoon of Sunday May 19th - providing a unique opportunity to sample hundreds of homebrews, arranged in their style groupings, with great and excellent examples of the styles flagged. A rare chance to compare your beers against others brewed to the same style, or just to explore the wide range of styles being made today.


This year's competition and festival is being held at Fourpure Brewing Co, Bermondsey London.

Beers will be assessed against BJCP Style Guidelines 2015 available via this link.


Eligibility: This competition is open to everyone, worldwide. Competition Organizers, staff, judges and stewards may enter the competition. Measures are in place to ensure fair, anonymous, judging. Judges and stewards will not be assigned to categories that they have entered. Entries must have been made at home. Those made in commercial establishments, including brew-on-premise establishments, are not eligible.

Fourpure Brewing Co
Fourpure is a London based brewery founded by brothers Dan and Tom Lowe in 2013. Beer is our passion and our travels are what inspire us to brew. Our approach to exceptional brewing is all about attention to detail and not cutting corners, in an age-old industry we aspire to constantly innovate, we are nimble and progressive yet strive to stay true to the principles of brewing – respecting the four core ingredients used to make beer: grain, yeast, hops and water. This was the inspiration for the name Fourpure. Our growing team hails from a broad range of backgrounds with a shared sense of enterprise, our focus on our quality control, our people and our training led us to be named 2017 Most Innovative and Brewery Business of the Year at the Society of Independent Brewers annual awards.
