Great American Beer Festival® Competition Expands to Include U.S. Territories


Great American Beer Festival

The Brewers Association announces that the Great American Beer Festival® (GABF) eligibility rules have been updated. Beginning in 2011, breweries located in the unincorporated, organized U.S. Territories of Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands will be eligible to enter the GABF.

Each year, breweries throughout the U.S. enter commercially available beers to be judged by the GABF's professional judge panel. Festival attendees can also sip the beer entered in the competition during four tasting sessions.

The Great American Beer Festival invites sensory trained beer industry professionals from around the world to evaluate entries in over 80 style categories. Judge panelists recognize up to three beers in each category with gold, silver and bronze medals. These awards are among the most coveted in the industry and heralded by the winning brewers in their national advertising.
