Packing & Shipping
Sending Your Beer
Beer is accepted at consolidation points September 5-11, 2023.
All beer is due at Blackburn Brew House by September 22, 2023.
Late submissions will not be accepted.
Breweries will submit 6x355ml cans (or 4x473ml) or 6x341ml bottles (or 4x650ml), or 2x growlers of 1 litre or more.
Step 1: Enter beers in the Brewery Awards Platform system
Step 2: Print system-generated QR code labels and affix to each can/bottle/growler
Step 3: Include an itemized beer list in each shipping box, and keep a copy for your records
Step 4: Ship or drop off packages to regional drop locations (if before announced cut-off date), or directly to central warehouse (if after cut-off date).
Please ensure all beer is packed securely to avoid any damage. We will contact breweries if broken bottles are received, however time may not allow for replacement bottles to be shipped. In an effort to be environmentally conscious, please refrain from using packing peanuts. It’s a mess for everyone involved, including the environment.
If your beer is sent in a special container or cooler, the container or cooler will not be returned.
