Brew Fest

Celebrate the Best in Fest Beer!

The Best in Fest Brewery Competition 1st Place award goes to the best beer being poured during the festival. Each entry is judged in advance by a panel of cicerones, certified beer judges, masters, and industry experts. The blind judging begins with how well each beer represents its style, then additional evaluation is based on the beer’s aroma, appearance, flavor, mouthfeel, and overall impression. Food pairing possibilities and drinkability are also considered. The judges also make food pairing suggestions for the beers in the competition. And finally, the top three beers are judged against each other to select the winner!
