BrewMania – The 2019 SJPC Competition
This is a “No Holds Bar” wrestling match. That means that you can make any style of beer. Brew your best beer and compete with this beer for all rounds of the competition.
Past 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place Winners in the U.S. (and respective countries) will not compete in round 1. This means that participants have a greater chance of moving on to Round 2!
SJPC Shipping Guidelines
The bottling and shipping guidelines provide important information about how to properly package and ship your beers. Remember, they have to survive transport to the hub and if a few of the beers break, it could put you out of the challenge. There’s a video, so ‘porr’ yourself a beer and get some tips on how to safely ship your competition beers.
SJPC Label Guideline
2019 CHANGES: No artwork and different ID#’s each round.
The Sjporr Challenge no longer allows beer labels with creative artwork. We know, this was half the fun in the early days. In order to keep judging anonymous, participants need to strictly follow the updated labeling guidelines. The new guidelines also require a New Unique SJPC ID# for each round of the competition. You will find templates for common label sizes. If you choose to use a different size label, the Label Guidelines show you what inforamation you to include (and what not to include) on each bottle, outer packaging and shipping box. Please read up on how to label your beers.
Media Files & YouTube Guidelines
As a courtesy to our sponsors, we ask that you include the provided 2019 Intro Video, when reviewing competitors beers and posting the videos on YouTube.
We also ask that you not post your beer review videos until after the winners of that round are announced. This section includes helpful guidelines to allow participants to quickly search for and find your videos on YouTube. The full guidelines, tips and video links can be found in the Media Files and YouTube Guidelines section.
SJPC Scoring Guidelines
We have further refined the scoring system for clarity and to ensure more consistency of beer scores.
Please review the full SJPC Scoring page and read the SJPC Scoring Guidelines. These guidelines are designed to help participants understand the spirit of the competition and how beers should be judged. A scale is provided that explains what the Final Score means in terms of the quality of the beer.
