This is the event where the homebrew clubs from all over Nebraska meet up to compete for the coveted Cup.

Four BJCP categories have been chosen, as well as one open category “Best Damn Beer”. Each club is allowed to submit a maximum of 2 entries per category.  Overall scoring for the categories is based on a point system.
1st place beers receives 3 points, 2nd place beers receives 2 points, and each 3rd place beers receives 1 point.

While the Best Damn Beer category does not progress to the Best Of Show round, it is used to decide who wins in case of a points-tie, as well as receiving the rare and super cool Rusty Capper traveling trophy.  This trophy will look great on any mantle.

The overall winner of BOS will receive the traveling Nebraska Shootout Cup.
