GTA Brews Shipping for BOTY 2019

Please send questions to:

We’re very excited to announce our club shipping program for the 2019 Brewer of the Year circuit. Last year we ranked 2nd overall as a club, and we are aiming for #1 this year! This program makes competition participation much less expensive for club members. If you are new to competitions, please read our BJCP Competition Guide for some tips to help you succeed.

*Changes for 2019* We've expanded our shipping program to all BOTY competitions. Shipping through the club is subsidized down to $1/bottle, which includes packaging materials and shipping.  All entries must be packaged in 12 oz (355 mL) longneck bottles, otherwise they will not fit into our cardboard bottle shippers. Other bottle shapes and sizes will not be accepted.

If you wish to use other bottle shapes or sizes, you are welcome to package your entries at home, and drop off a sealed box. In this case you will not be charged the $1/bottle, but you still need to register the same way.

Entry Drop Off Locations

We have arranged several drop off locations to maximize the opportunity for participation. Each location has a different drop off deadline according to our expected collection date. See the competition list below for exact dates (requires membership login).

Drop off locations: Monthly Meetings, Toronto Brewing, Muddy York, UANS International
