Thanks and Good Luck To All Who Entered the 2017 Oregon State Fair!

There are 275 registered entries and 149 registered participants, judges, and stewards.

As of 4:49 AM, there are 260 received and processed entries (this number will update as entries are picked up from drop-off locations and organized for judging).


This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.

All mailed entries must received at the mailing location by the entry deadline - please allow for shipping time.

All entries will be picked up from drop-off locations the day of the entry deadline.

All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or Brew on Premises operations, supplies, etc.).

The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once. For example, participants may enter a Belgian Pale (16B) and Belgian Saison (16C), but may not enter two Saisons, even if they are different brews.

Categories with a small number of entries may be combined at the discretion of the competition organizers. The Competition Coordinator or other qualified person will review elements of beer categories and styles with each panel prior to judging.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Blue Ribbon Panel based on a second judging of the top winners.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
