Thank you for your interest in the COC 5/2024: Fruit, Spice & Veg-O-Matic organized by QUAFF.

You only need to register your information once and can return to this site to enter more brews or edit the brews you've entered.

Thanks and Good Luck To All Who Entered the COC 5/2024: Fruit, Spice & Veg-O-Matic !

There are 41 registered entries and 30 registered participants, judges, and stewards.

As of 7:49 PM, PDT, there are 36 received and processed entries (this number will update as entries are picked up from drop-off locations and organized for judging).


QUAFF Club Only Competitions (COCs) are AHA sanctioned and participation is FREE for all QUAFF members (who, by definition, are homebrewers age 21 or older.)  Non-QUAFFers can still join in the fun - just include a money order for $39.97 per entry payable to QUAFF when you drop off your entries - or you can join QUAFF here.


All entries must be dropped off at the drop location prior to the 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, entries that were dropped off at the wrong location or not received by the entry deadline, or entries that were damaged during transportation to Ben's office.

COCs serve three primary functions: 1) Provide qualified judging and feedback of your entries to help you grow as a homebrewer; 2) Provide a platform for members interested in judging to hone their skills; and 3) Recognize the best homebrewers in QUAFF through the Homebrewer of the Year and Rising Star programs.

Judges will evaluate and score each entry according to the BJCP 2021 Guidelines based on the category, subcategory and specialty information provided when you registered your entry.  The best entry/s in each flight will move to the Best of Show (BOS) round where overall winners will be selected and ranked 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

Each entrant may register (as brewer and/or co-brewer) a maximum of three (3) entries for each COC.  Brewers may submit multiple entries in a single subcategory so long as each entry is unique (i.e. you may NOT submit more than one entry in a subcategory unless they are different enough to be reasonably recognized or judged as different entries).

Results will be announced during the QUAFF General Meeting following the conclusion of BOS judging.  Points earned in the COCs count toward QUAFF Homebrewer of the Year and QUAFF Rising Star.  Entrants are encouraged to submit scoresheets from QUAFF COC's to the Master Homebrewer Program (MHP) - for which QUAFF has a club level membership.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.


REMINDER: As a QUAFF member, the fee of $39.97 per entry is waived; non-QUAFF members are welcome to drop off payment with your entries - or join QUAFF for just $31.00 per year and enter the COCs for free.
