Welcome to the 12th Annual – 2019 First Coast Cup
July 26th & 27th
Entry Window – June 10th – July 3rd
Drop Off Deadline – July 3rd!
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 success. 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 four (4) beers for a total of eight (8) 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.
