Home Brew Competition
Roberts Cove Germanfest
Each submission should have an official Bottle Identification Form attached to the bottle via a rubber band. See AHA web site for the form.
Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Do not over pack! Write clearly: “Fragile. This Side Up.” on the package. Your package should weigh less than 25 pounds. The preferred packaging material is bubble wrap.
To ensure identity, place entry forms and payment in a sealed zip-top bag. Additionally, enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles.
Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles. It is not against any Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) regulations or federal laws to ship your entries via privately owned shipping company. However, IT IS ILLEGAL TO SHIP ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES VIA THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE. Private shipping companies have the right to refuse your shipment if they are informed that the package contain glass and/or alcoholic beverages. It is solely the entrant’s responsibility to follow all applicable laws and regulations.
