Registration has begun for the Indiana Brewer’s Cup at the State Fair. Three bottles per entry will need to be submitted to Sun King Brewery between now and June 22nd along with a $10 entry fee which can be submitted here. Each bottle will need to have a completed bottle ID form affixed to it with a rubber band. Once submitted, each exhibitor will receive two tickets to the Brewers’ Cup Award Reception on Saturday, July 7 at 6:00 pm on the Indiana State Fairgrounds where the results will be announced. Make sure that your bottles are not labeled or caps marked in any way as it may disqualify your entry. For those of you just now bottling, you should still have more than enough time for your entries to condition. Best of luck!
