Announced in July 2021:
The Louisiana SPCA and Brewstock are proud to bring you the NOLA on Tap Homebrew Competition for 2021. Despite not having our favorite festival of the year, we are keeping NOLA on Tap alive this year with a remote competition, hosted through Brewstock Homebrew Supplies. Get pumped, get excited, start planning your beers.

REGISTRATION
Due to popular demand, we are doing pre-registration before collection. Registration will open for beers on September 1st and run through October 15th. We will be accepting 80 total entries, and limiting it to 2 entries per person. You can register by visiting Brewstock Homebrew Supplies, or give us a call at 504-208-2788, or email oliver@brewstock.com. Each entry will cost $8.00.

All entry fees and proceeds will be donated directly to the animals at the Louisiana SCPA.

COLLECTION
Collection will occur any time during Brewstock’s business hours between October 16th and November 1st. Please supply no less than THREE (3) 12 oz amber/brown blank beer bottles. Your bottles must have a solid single colored cap, and must not have any label or identifying mark. You can drop off your beers at Brewstock or ship them to 1300 S Broad Ave. We’ll collect your beer, label it for you, and it will get judged on the afternoon of November 7th.

JUDGING
The judges will be a wily gang of BJCP judges scoring you with official BJCP sheets. All beers will get judged and receive a score out of 50. Any beer that scores a 40 or higher will advance into the Finals / Best In Show Round. During the Finals, all judges will collectively review each finalist, validate first round scores, and choose the best three of the bunch. We are planning to announce the day of(!) the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
