The Coconut Cup homebrew competition began fifteen years ago as a challenge between the Miami Area Society of Homebrewers (MASH) and the Ft. Lauderdale Area Brewers (FLAB) homebrewing clubs. Participation has grown to include other Florida homebrewing clubs and we have invited homebrewers from across the Southeast to participate in our competition. The 2015 Coconut Cup will be the fourteenth Coconut Cup sanctioned by the Beer Judge Competition Program / American Homebrewers Association.
No more than two entries per sub-category can be submitted by any brewer or brewing team. The Coconut Cup limits each brewer or brewing team to no more than six entries. Total entries for this year’s competition will be capped at 400. Your registration is not committed until payment is received. No refunds will be permitted after a registered entry is paid for.
The entry window will open on January 15, 2015. Entries must be received by February 14, 2015
