Will you be entering the Grafton Brewing Competition in 2019?
The Grafton Brewing Competition is coming up shortly, with entries closing on Friday 26th April 2019 (earlier if using a drop off point).
This is a not for profit event. Entries are welcomed from both experienced and newer amateur brewers, with entry fee’s being very affordable at $2 per entry.
Attending and taking part in the event has become a yearly pilgrimage for some.
The event has been running in varying formats since 1867 and will again be a BJCP sanctioned event in 2019.
Judging takes place on Saturday 4th May 2019, with judges’ feedback being sent out after the Grafton Show opens the following week.
The judging panels consist of BJCP certified or provisional judges, experienced beer judges, and commercial brewers.
If you are interested in being on the judging panel (or know of someone suitable) and are able to get to Grafton, please contact to discuss further.
Those entrants wishing to attend on the judging day as spectators, please RSVP as soon as possible (numbers are limited).
GET THE PROGRAMME

Grafton has plenty of inexpensive accommodation, much of this being in walking distance to the judging venue.
