Online Submissions Close: June 22, 2018

Send Beer Shipments for Judging: July 3 – July 13, 2018

Beer Shipping Location: Coldhaus Brampton - 60 Hereford Street Brampton, ON L6Y 0N3

Send six bottles/cans of each beer entered.  Ensure all boxes are labelled with COMPANY NAME, PRODUCT NAME and CATEGORY NAME.  Companies submitting non-pasteurized products are encouraged to ship using overnight delivery (not for Saturday or Sunday delivery). The Canadian Brewing Awards will not accept beer in keg format. NOTE: We ask for multiple bottles/cans of your product for two reasons: First, to ensure that if your beer advances to further rounds, which often happen a day or two later,  there are still fresh samples available for judging. Second, in the event that breakage or spillage occurs during shipping, we avoid the delay involved in you shipping replacement bottles or cans.

It is your responsibility to ensure all beers are packed tightly in shipping boxes to avoid breakage. We strongly suggest you wrap each bottle securely in bubble wrap. All beers received will immediately be refrigerated and categorized for the competition. If entering more than one product, you may ship them together, however, please separate the samples by category within the package and label accordingly.

Award Ceremony

The Ontario Brewing Awards will be held September 13th at Berkeley Church(315 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M5A 1S7) from 7PM - 11PM.

The evening will feature a selection of great food and the best of Ontario craft beers.
