Register for the 2016 BrewUnited Challenge!

September 15th was the entry deadline; we are no longer accepting entries. You may still use the form below to purchase commemorative items.

Please use the form below to register for the 2016 BrewUnited Challenge. Note that there is a cap of one hundred fifty beers per Division, and a cap of fifty beers for the SMaSH category, for a total of five hundred beers for this competition. Beer will not be accepted for processing at our judging centers until September 26th, 2016 - October 7th, 2016; however, early registration is advisable due to the entry caps. We would hate for you to brew a beer (or four), only to discover that the competition is already full!

You have already entered the max number of beers (four) for this competition. You may use the form below to purchase additional commemorative items, but you may not enter additional beers. Thanks!

To enter the competition, you must register for a community account. For your convenience, you may do so as part of the competition registration process. IF YOU ARE ALREADY A MEMBER, PLEASE LOG IN BEFORE YOU PROCEED.

Welcome to the BrewUnited community! We're stoked to have you.

Honestly, we want to keep things informal. Nobody enjoys long, technical Terms of Service agreements, and despite the fact that we all check the "agree" box, few of us every bother to read them, anyway.

So, in an effort to simplify, by joining BrewUnited, you agree to abide by Wheaton's Law. If you can do that, odds are, we will never have an issue.

Of course, nothing in life ever seems to be that simple. So, please feel free to click to expand the Terms of Service a bit below.

  • No trolling. What is trolling? We know it when we see it. We don't expect for everyone to get along, but people who spend the lion's share of their time tearing others down will be invited to find a community more suitable to them.

    To expand on this tenet: everyone is welcome here. Homebrewing has a reputation as a white male's hobby, yet the 2013 AHA Homebrewer of the year was a black female... which is awesome. We both value and encourage diversity, and don't want this community to be an "old boy's club". In other words, treat everyone with the respect that you would like to receive.

  • No spamming. Assuming that you are at least somewhat active in the community, we want you to share your blog/website/project with us. Link to your homebrew related content to your heart's content! Link to your non homebrew stuff in the spamvertize section of the forums. That being said, please don't post links to your pyramid schemes, diet pills, penis enlargement pumps, and similar actual spam. As above, we'll know it when we see it.

  • Don't post pornography or the like. The reasons for this should be obvious - not the least of which being that our web host would shut the site down if we allowed this. Also, this is a hobby supposedly participated in by adults only, so while some profanity is not unexpected, please be reasonable. Collections of swear words for the heck of it aren't really what we need on the site.

  • Likewise, don't post anything illegal. We don't want to get shut down because people post links to warez, bomb construction guides, recipes for homemade roofies, whatever. This extends to harmful activities like sharing of viruses, trojans, malware, and the like.

  • You own your own intellectual property. If you choose to make a blog or article post, you get full credit for it. If you want to post it elsewhere (to your own blog, to another website, to another forum), go for it! We would rather you not post an exact duplicate of your post - Google will ding us both for duplicate content - but, whatever. Posting such a thing simply means you grant permission to display your content.

    With that being said, pursuant to your agreement to follow Wheaton's Law, it is understood that if you post real content, you're not going to just take it down (don't be an Injun giver). It would suck if people get accustomed to finding a cool "how to" guide that you later pull off the site, but that's your right. However, if you post real content, then take it down, don't be surprised if you are prevented from posting content in the future.

  • Now, the technical crap. Sorry.
