Entry Acceptance Rules

Two bottles are required for all entries, except Dunkles Bock, for which THREE bottles are required. The third bottle will be judged by a separate, independent group of judges consisting of the staff of the Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. This flight will be judged in a Best of Show format (no scoresheets). The winner will have their recipe brewed by Christian Moerlein, to be served as the 2019 Schoenling Bock. For all entries keg and growler entries ARE accepted, but only by prior contact and permission from the Competition Organizer, and they will need to be dropped off in the days immediately preceding the competition (details are still being worked out).

Bottle entries need to be shipped to or dropped off at the Listermann Brewing Co., 1621 Dana Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45207. Entries will NOT be accepted before February 12th, and must be received no later than 6:00 PM, February 28th. Judges who have entries may hand carry them on the day of the competition with the permission of the Competition Organizer, and they must be present a minimum of 45 minutes before judging starts.
