Rules

This competition is open to any amateur mead makers age 21 or older.

You may only enter a mead once.

All mailed entries must be received at the mailing location by the shipping deadline - please allow for shipping time.

This is a competition for home-crafted mead. Commercial Meaderies, commercial meadmakers, employees of Commercial meaderies, and former production commercial meadmakers are not eligible to enter.  Mead produced on commercial equipment is not permitted, and any such entries will be disqualified. If you have questions please email us at info@mazercup.org.  

Any and all “Weed/Cannabis/Derivative Mead” entries are prohibited and will be disqualified.  You may not enter the same mead in more than one category.  There is a limit of ten (10) entries per contestant.

All entries become the property of the Mazer Cup International and will not be returned. Any questions or disputes will be settled by the competition organizers, and all decisions are final. 

Please note that we have never, in any of our competitions disqualified anyone for shipping too few bottles.  It is up to you how many to send. However, you bear the responsibility if there is loss during shipment and not enough left of your entries to advance to the medal rounds as a result.

We request you send three bottles, if you send bottles smaller than 10 oz (300 ml) each, please send four.   We prefer 12 oz beer bottles as they are easier to stack, store and handle, however, we will accept whatever bottles you send.  Once again, sending only two bottles will not provide enough mead for the category and the BOS judging rounds. If one of the bottles breaks during shipping there is no guarantee there will be enough for subsequent medal rounds. Three bottles ensure enough mead for medal and BoS if your mead progresses that far.  Don't be that person that misses out on a medal because you did not want to send enough mead. Also, keep in mind the BOS judges will be five to six judges!


The official style guidelines for this competition are the 2015 Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) Style Guidelines for Mead, Revision 2015. The BJCP Style guidelines can be found at https://ww.bjcp.org.  Every entry must be assigned a particular category and sub-category by the entrant, and according to these guidelines.  Competition staff is not permitted to categorize entries that arrive unlabeled, illegible, or otherwise indiscernible as to the entry category.  Competition staff (including judges) are not permitted to re-classify or re-categorize incorrectly entered mead.

Entrants, either as a primary or as a co-entrant, may submit multiple entries per category (only 3 meads per sub-category).  Please use a rubber band to attach the identification label to each bottle. Entry forms and all three bottle labels for a single entry must have the same information on them.

All entries must be entered via the online entry system, and entries are not guaranteed until they are paid for in PayPal.  No entries will be accepted at the venue, no exceptions.  Your entries are not guaranteed until payment is made.  Any entries not paid when the entry cap is reached will be disqualified.

NOTE: We strongly recommend the use of placeholder entries followed immediately by payment to secure your spot in the competition.
