The BrewFest at Mount Hope Homebrew Competition is an AHA/BJCP Sanctioned Homebrew Competition that is open to the following BJCP styles 1-16 & 18-22 with the exception of 22C (Wood-Aged Beer). The 2008 edition of the BJCP Style Guidelines will be used to judge entries. It is the brewer's responsibility to determine the correct category/subcategory to enter their beers, and to provide additional information where required. Depending on the number of entries and category distribution, categories and subcategories may be combined or separated for judging and awards purposes. These judging table breakdowns will not be available prior to the competition and will be determined by the competition committee once all the entries have been processed.

Awards will be given to the top three entries of each flight as well as Best of Show. Best of Show first place winner gets to work with the BrewMaster from Swashbuckler Brewing Company and their recipe will be brewed at the Swashbuckler Brewing Company and sampled at the 2010 BrewFest at Mount Hope. This honor also makes the winner eligible to enter in the Pro-Am category at the GABF.
