The Bloatarian Open is a competition for Bloatarian Brewing League members only.  You must be a paid member to enter.

This competition is a great way for members to get feedback on their beers.  In addition, it is a terrific opportunity to learn about how to evaluate beers by volunteering to judge.  No certification is required - we will pair inexperienced judges with BJCP judges so that you can learn.

In order to encourage new members to enter beers and get feedback that will hopefully increase the quality of your future beers, the entry fee is waived for new members (joined after September 1, 2015). Do not register your entries until you receive the discount code from the Competition Coordinator (see link on Contact page).

Entry Fees (unlimited entries):

  • Plastic bottles and kegs hand carried day of competition - $10 (free to new members)
  • Glass bottles dropped at specified locations prior to drop off deadline - $10 (free to new members)
