Best of Show
Goodwood Brewing has graciously offered to invite the winning brewer to come to their Frankfort location to brew a 5 barrel batch of the winning beer (certain style restrictions apply). The beer will then be served at their taprooms.
The awards ceremony will take place once judging is completed.
Places will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category/table.To insure the quality of the entries receiving awards, the organizers reserve the right to place minimum scores needed to receive a given award.
The 1st place entry in each category will advance to the Best of Show (BOS) round with a single, overall Best of Show beer selected. Depending on the number of entries, there may be separate BOS awards for beer, ciders, and/or meads.
We are introducing our Badass of the Bluegrass award for the best brewer. It will be based on a point system for awards earned.
Both score sheets and awards will be available for pick up that night after the ceremony concludes. Awards and score sheets not picked up will be mailed back to participants. Results will be posted to the competition web site after the ceremony concludes.
