Taste NY Governor's Cup Craft Beer Competition

To make a great craft beer you bring all of your artistry, dedication, science and passion to the table. We bring the most respected judges from the industry to the other side of that table.

OUR GOAL IS TO INCREASE AWARENESS IN YOUR BREWERY AND HELP YOU SELL MORE GREAT BEER!

 

Our Judges

WE HAVE THE BEST JUDGES. Our judges include the most influential people in the NY beer industry, including Brewmasters, Cicerones, BJCP judges, educators, retailers, and industry writers and consultants.

The Taste NY Governor's Cup Craft Beer Competition is open to all commercial breweries in New York state.

Please carefully review the Entry Categories and choose the correct category for your beer. We reserve the right to add, remove, or alter categories depending on the number of entries.

We use the BJCP 2015 Guidelines (click here)

Please submit all additional information judges will need to fairly evaluate your beer. This can include (but is not limited to) SRM, IBU, special ingredients or processes, etc.

The information you enter in the ‘Production Notes for Judging’ section of each entry will appear on the Judge’s Scoring Sheet. Please restrict information in this section to any production related info you wish the judges to be aware of as they evaluate your beer. DO NOT include tasting notes or marketing text.

All beers entered must be available for sale to the public. Individual beers may only be entered in one category. Multiple entries per category are allowed. 

Please include retail price of all beer in U.S. Dollars per bottle/can. Declared value of the beer is necessary so that all unopened beer can be donated to charity for fundraising purposes. All beer should be priced according to the bottle/can size entered (eg. $3.00 per 12oz.). 

Please make sure to ship 72oz. of beer (6- 12oz, 5- 16oz, 4- 22oz, etc.) in bottles or cans (including crowlers) ~ sorry no growlers.

Please send securely packed cans, bottles or growlers!
