Each of the 2 full bottles must be labeled with the official entry form, securely attached with a rubber band. Any other identification must be removed from the bottles. Bottles and shipping containers will not be returned.
Judging for the Home Brew competition will be held on Thursday, August 1st. Categories may be combined if there are not enough entries in a given style category.

Ribbons will be awarded by the Tillamook County Fair for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the judged categories. Categories may be combined depending on the number of entries received. The “Best Of Show” winner will receive the “Brewers Getaway Package”- one night stay in a Kiwanda Guest Room for two at the Inn at Cape Kiwanda, a $50 gift card for the Pelican Pub & Brewery, and a chance to meet the brewers at a special behind-the-scenes tour of the brewery.
