Terms & Conditions:
* The Canadian International Beer Awards are based on BJCP guidelines but not an official BJCP event. * You may enter as many unique beers as you want - each unique beer may only be entered into one category (i.e. if you enter a beer into IPAs - it cannot go into another category).* The one exception to this rule is the 'Rookie of the Year' category. If a beer has never been at the event, it may be entered in its style category and also in the 'Rookie of the Year' category. This is the sole exception.* First 2 beers per brewery entered into the CIBAs are free. Each additional beer entered is $25 and will be taken out of sample tokens after the show so there is no up-front cost.* A brewery must be registered as an exhibitor in order to qualify for the judging. (i.e. A beer may be poured at a restaurant/pub/eatery booth, but if the brewery itself is not registered in the festival as an exhibitor, it does not qualify for the CIBAs)* All beers entered into the CIBAs must be poured at the event and available for consumers to sample. Judging stewards will be coming to your booth to collect the beer at any point starting at 3:30pm on the Friday, and noon on the Saturday. It is your responsibility to have the equivalent of 1.5 litres or can/bottle equivalent to give to the steward as soon as they arrive. Timing is crucial for the CIBAs - if your beer is not ready, you will not be judged and no refund will be given.* We judge a maximum of 22 beers per judging group. If there are more than 22 beers entered into a certain style category, we will break them in to 2 or more 'heats'. If one of your beers makes the finals, a steward will need to come and collect another 1.5 litres or can/bottle equivalent.
