First Coast Cup

FCC 2017 Medal

Welcome to the 10th Annual – 2017 First Coast Cup

August 4th & 5th
Entry Window – June 26th
Drop Off Deadline – July 13th

Each year First Coast Cup continues to improve and this year is no different. We have made some minor tweaks that we hope will improve everyone’s overall enjoyment and make this year’s event the best yet. Last year’s event and pub crawl ended with great reviews and we intend to keep improving on our recent sucess. We have decided to continue to cap this year’s entries at 600. Brewers will be allowed to enter a maximum of four (4) beers for the first week of open registration and then up to an additional three (3) beers for a total of seven (7) for the remainder of the entry window. Enter early.

This year’s First Coast Cup will be held again at the Four Points by Sheraton Jacksonville on Baymeadows.

Judging will begin at 8am on Friday, August 4th and continue until approximately 5pm. Saturday’s judging will also begin at 8am and continue until complete. Lunch will be provided for all judges for both days. For those of you who will be coming in from out of town and want to judge, please notify us as early as you can so we can sort the flights accordingly.


In addition to Saturday’s awards banquet, we have some fantastic activities planned for this year’s First Coast Cup.

Don’t forget about our “Big Wood” category for wood-aged beers with an original gravity of 1.070 or greater.

Also, if you would like to enter a Keg in our Annual Pre-Awards Keg Comp, we have a “Pros” (Professional Brewer) and a “Joes” (Homebrewer) competition. There will be an overall winner as well.
