Thank you for your interest in the Music City Brew Off organized by Music City Brewers, Nashville, TN.

Thanks and Good Luck To All Who Entered the Music City Brew Off!

There are 253 registered entries and 66 registered participants, judges, and stewards.

As of 4:24 PM, there are 224 received and processed entries (this number will update as entries are picked up from drop-off locations and organized for judging).


This competition is BJCP/AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older. We will be using the 2015 BJCP Guidelines.

Entry registration will close October 21st @ 5:00pm.  We will accept entries (at the shipping location) throughout the entry registration window.

All mailed entries must be received at Rebel Brewer by the entry deadline (October 21st @ 5:30pm) - please allow for shipping time. There are no exceptions to this rule.  If your entry is late it will be disqualified. No refunds will be provided for disqualified entries.

The Competition entry limit is 350 entries.  First registered first accepted!


All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of the entry deadline.

All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or Brew on Premises operations, supplies, etc.).

The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once. For example, participants may enter a Belgian Pale (24B) and a Witbier (24A), but may not enter two Witbiers, even if they are different brews.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine categories based on number of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top winners.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
