Rules

Shamrock Open is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned event and open to all homebrewers with the primary goal to provided applicable feedback for Brewers to make better homecrafted beer. 

Categories

Entries will be evaluated using the 2021 BJCP Style Guidelines.

All Styles in the 34 Beer Categories of the BJCP Style Guidelines will be accepted. Mead and Cider Categories will not be accepted.

Entries will be submitted by Style and evaluated based on that specific Style Guideline.

Styles will be assigned to Flights based Style/Category entry count, Style Family and Judge resources. Categories with a low entry count (<5) will be combined with a Category of similar styles (if at all possible). A Category with a high entry count will be conducted under a mini-BOS format and/or spread across multiple sub-category Flights. 

Judging

The Judge Director will assign Judge Pairs and Flight assignments, matching experience levels and individual strengths and preferences.

Judge Pairs will individually evaluate, discuss, notate and score each Entry. Entries in a Flight will be ranked by their average Judge Pair score. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Best of Show evaluation will be conducted by five senior BJCP Judges immediately following the conclusion of the second session.

Judge and Steward experience points will be reported to the BJCP.
