GTA Brews Shipping for BOTY 2020

Please send questions to:

We’re very excited to announce our club shipping program for the 2020 Brewer of the Year circuit. Last year we ranked 1st overall as a club, and we want to maintain the status quo! 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.

*** Please read carefully as instructions have changed ***

We've expanded our shipping program to all BOTY competitions. Shipping through the club is subsidized down to $1.5/bottle if we pack them for you (packaging materials and shipping).

If you wish to use other bottle shapes or sizes or wish to pack yourself, you are welcome to package your entries at home and drop off a sealed box. In this case, you will be charged the $0.50/bottle for shipping.

No matter which shipping method you choose, you will need to create an order (item #2 of each competition below), pay for it, print a copy and send it with your entries. Please make sure the copy of the order is visible for the officers to process it.

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 we pack the entries for you.

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
