New Homebrew Competition Brews Up Entries for the Great American Beer Festival Pro-Am Competition

Boulder, CO(May 8, 2007) - 2006 was the first year for the Brewers Association’s Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Pro-Am Competition held in Denver, Colorado. The competition had 38 entries. The popularity of the competition has brewed up interest nationwide for entries in the 2007 GABF Pro-Am Competition.
Entries submitted to the GABF Pro-Am Competition are brewed by professional craft brewers based on award winning homebrew recipes from American Homebrewers Association members. Homebrew recipes are scaled up and brewed at a craft brewery for submission into the competition, only 96 entries will be accepted. The entries are judged and winners are awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals.

In addition to sanctioned events, this year, homebrew competitions specifically serving as GABF qualifying pro-am competitions have been established. Puget Sound Pro-Am is one of these competitions. At the Puget Sound Pro-Am, homebrew entries will be judged and craft brewers select the winning recipes to scale up on their brewing system. The participating breweries are: Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Harmon Brewery and Restaurant, Diamond Knot Brewery and Alehouse, Elysian Brewing Company, Rogue Brewery, and Powerhouse Brewery. The team of the homebrewer (if the homebrewer is an American Homebrewers Association member) and craft brewer can scale up the homebrewer’s recipe and brew it at the craft brewery for submission into the GABF Pro-Am Competition.
With new qualifying competitions around the country and increased awareness of the GABF Pro-Am; the Brewers Association anticipates that the 2007 GABF Pro-Am Competition will be even more successful than 2006.
