GTA Brews is excited to announce our second annual, nation-wide, homebrew competition; Brew Slam 2016 (#BrewSlam2)! This is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition, and also part of the Canadian Brewer of the Year circuit. The judging will take place at Amsterdam Brewery (Leaside) from Sept 30th to Oct 2nd.


We are excited to build on last year’s success and make Brew Slam 2016 bigger and better. Our goal is to make this the premier competition in the area for both judges and entrants. Toronto has the largest pool of BJCP judges in Canada which allows us to focus on the best quality judging and feedback possible. We are also excited to work with some fantastic sponsors for even better prizes than last year!

Entries for Brew Slam will be accepted at the shipping and drop off locations beginning on September 2nd, the same day that the system will start accepting entry registrations. The entry deadline for all entries to arrive at the shipping and drop off locations is end of business day on Saturday September 24th. Ship early to avoid delays.

Visit our Sponsors, Awards, & Prizes page!

Brew Slam has Pro-Ams, “Brewer for a Day”, thousands of dollars in prizes up for grabs. If feedback alone isn’t enough to convince you to enter our competition, than our ridiculously big list of prizes should be!

Visit our Rules and Submission Instructions page!

Our rules and submission instructions are fairly standard and relaxed, but please make sure to give them a quick look. This page also has the addresses for our drop off and shipping locations.

First time entering a competition? Want a quick refresher/overview about how it works? This guide also explains why no beer is ever out of style when entered correctly, every beer you can brew has a home in the BJCP Guidelines.
