Deadline for entries 5pm - October 18
$10 per beer entered. No limit of entries
This is the entry form for the Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival’s Homebrew Competition for 2019.
Thanks to our mates at Black Rock, Dunedin Malt House and Emerson’s, you could be brewing the 2020 Festival Beer!
As with previous years, each beer entered is $10! Each homebrewed beverage you want to enter requires a separate entry form. Enter your personal details on all entries. If you have special instructions for the judges (e.g. request that the judges roll a bottle of Belgian Wit before serving) please include these in the special instructions section.
This year, there will be no tickets to the festival included in the Homebrew Competition entries. For each entry, you’ll need to provide 2 x 330ml or larger bottles and pay the entry fees to the staff at the Dunedin Malt House (596 Hillside Road) when you drop your entry in. There are some great prizes up for grabs including Cryer Malt, Black Rock and prize packs from Dunedin Malt House. The winner will also receive the chance to brew their winning recipe with Emerson’s Brewery for the 2020 Dunedin Craft Beer and Food Festival’s very own Festival Beer which is on taps at the Craft Garden.
Entries must be received no later than 5pm on October 18th. Your entries must be brewed by you on homebrewing equipment. If you are a professional brewer or work at a brewery you must specify this – depending on numbers of entries we may create a category just for brewing professionals. Good luck and get brewing!
Last year NZ Customs approached us and made us aware that under NZ law, homebrewed alcohol is only supposed to be intended for personal consumption. We worked together with them to get an exemption for all entrants for the volumes entered for making this outside of a Customs Controlled Area. We also counted up all of the volumes and alcohol percentages and paid excise duty on the alcohol produced, on behalf of the entrants, from their entry fees.
We will be doing the same again this year, and it would be greatly appreciated if you entered the volumes of the bottles you will be entering each brew in. This will speed up the process of calculating the excise duty massively. Thanks.
