Samples, Packaging & Shipping - Best of Craft Beer Awards


We've made this super simple. For the Fresh Hop sessions:

11.2oz (330mL) - 15.9oz (470mL) Five (5) containers are required*
16oz (475mL) - 32oz (~1L) Four (4) containers are required*

*Sending less than the required container quantities may result in a brewery's beer not being judged
** If containers are damaged in transit, competition organizers may advise on whether to send additional samples or (at their discretion) allow a lesser container quantity to be judged


- Package your bottles and cans for rough transit. AVOID PACKING PEANUTS.

- A packing list is preferred. Include quantity, container type, and beer name.

- Our recommended shipping containers are WHALE PODS. We've never received damaged samples sent in these.
