Potential Special Prize:
We are partnering with local brewers to potentially have one or more beers brewed at local breweries! The brewers have the option to pick a beer from those winning a first place medal to brew. Those chosen will be contacted in order to get recipes and to coordinate with the brewer.

Getting Entries To Us
There are two ways to get your entries (and entry fees) to us:
- You can ship the entries to: Triptych Brewing, Boneyard Brewoff, 1703 Woodfield Dr., Savoy, IL 61874. Pack the bottles well but don't kill a forest. It is illegal to ship alcohol through the United States Postal Service, but it is not illegal to use private shippers for samples to be organoleptically evaluated. However, individual clerks may not be aware of the regulations, so it is sufficient to label the contents "non-perishable food."
- You can drop-off the entries at the Triptych Brewing address listed above. Prepare the bottles as normal with labels attached with a rubber band. Please put entries in a six-pack carrier and boxed with a minimum of packing along with the fees. Drop offs can be made during normal business hours. Please see the following website for hours of operation -- www.triptychbrewing.com
