Can't see any problem as long as there's 2 bottles.

Would you allow Brett Saisons which are normally under  28A?

We don't discriminate on the basis of size. We're the smallest county after all!

If submitting 33cl bottles we'll need you to send 3 bottles. 1 bottle for initial judging, 1 for potential mini-BOS and the 3rd for Best of Show, should your beer make it that far. Registration page has been updated.
