Notes

We judged the entries in fourteen preliminary flights over four days using the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines. Mini Best of Show rounds were required for all categories, which were prized as outlined above. All beers awarded first place in their category were advanced to the BOS round. Please note that, as always, prizes were awarded (or not) at the discretion of the judges. Feedback and prizes are available for the pickup in the homebrew shop during regular store hours, and will be mailed to out-of-towners soon.
