Pay Entry Fees

After creating your account and adding your entries to the system, you must pay your entry fee(s). Accepted payment methods are:

  • Check, made out to Greater Huntington Homebrewers Association


Entry Acceptance Rules

Brewers must submit 2 (TWO) 10 - 12 ounce bottles made of brown glass for each beer entry. NO bombers, NO PET bottles, NO Grolsch-style swingtops. Caps must be blacked out or blank, and no identifying marks should be on the bottle -- but raised lettering is OK.  Bottle labels, which the online registration tool creates for entrants when they enter their beers, must be printed and attached to each bottle with a rubber band by the entrant. Do not use tape or glue, since these will be disqualified. No bottles, filled or unfilled, can be returned. An entry form will also be created for each beer as it is registered, and the form must be printed and included with entries.

Packing and Shipping

Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Please do not over pack!

Write clearly: Fragile. This Side Up. on the package. Please only use bubble wrap as your packing material.

Enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles. This way it makes it possible for the organizer to identify specifically which entry has broken if there is damage during shipment.

Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles.

If you live in the United States, please note that it is illegal to ship your entries via the United States Postal Service (USPS). Private shipping companies have the right to refuse your shipment if they are informed that the package contains glass and/or alcoholic beverages. Be aware that entries mailed internationally are often required by customs to have proper documentation. These entries might be opened and/or returned to the shipper by customs officials at their discretion. It is solely your responsibility to follow all applicable laws and regulations.
