    We're accepting entries at Craftbrewer and the Burleigh Brewing warehouse for drop-off. Details will be available next week for the drop-off. You can ship entries to use if you're in rural Queensland or interstate. We'll be announcing the shipping details closer to the end of February. Note: we won't be shipping prizes directly to winners or providing transport for the brew day, the prizes will be pickup only or shipping at your own expense.

    Just one 750mL bottle, PET preferred but we also will be accepting glass bottles.

    Just to clarify......

    The entry form for each beer submitted must include full recipe details, etc as requested on the form? Or are recipes only required for the "special" beers nominated as such?

    Cheers.

    In my experience, you generally don't have to give the recipe.
    For the specialty beer category, it is often a good idea to provide some information to the judges, e.g. "this is a cherry infused, bretted, eisbock-pilsner" that way the judges have a bit of a clue on what to expect.
    I don't believe it is a requirement for that category either.

    OP should be able to confirm this in greater detail

    I sent an email as per the instructions in this post and got quite a good detailed response about the location and handling... Here's the most part of it. I'd suggest emailing them via the link if you have any more questions... Cheers

    We're having entries sent directly to Burleigh Brewing warehouse. Please clearly label them for the storage if you want them to go in the fridges ASAP.

    I'd like to know when you send them so I can let the warehouse know they are on their way. If you could try aim for them to arrive Monday 27th March - Friday 31st March then that would be awesome, don't leave it too late though.

    Basically, I'd prefer if you line the dates up so they arrive before the Saturday April 1st as we are bottle sorting on that day. Any later than that will be a pain to deal with.


    Address details are below.

    Burleigh Brewing Warehouse
    GCABC Competition
    c/o Burleigh Brewing
    14 Alex Fisher Drive,
    Burleigh Heads,
    Queensland, 4220


    Please pay for shipping tracking and let me know the tracking number once the package is sent. I need to pass that along to the guys in the Burleigh Brewing warehouse.

    Entry is very easy on the website and I really liked how it generated the entry forms and labels for you. I imagine its very helpful on the comp administration side of things too. I hope the state and national organisers have a look at this to see if it could be used by them.
