Best of Show

The Best of Show winner will be invited to Half Pints Brewery to brew their winning BOS beer. This beer will be featured at select Manitoba Liquor Marts and will be displayed in a special promo in select MB Liquor mart stores in the fall of 2017 prior to next year’s competition. Travel assistance may be available. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place BOS beers may have additional prizes.

Awards

The awards ceremony will take place once judging is completed.

Places will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category/table.

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.

The top two scoring commercial beers will be giving distribution at Manitoba Liquor Marts and will be featured in our competition promo in Fall of 2017.

Up to four of the top scoring local beers may be featured at the Winnipeg Brew Bombers booth in 2018. Winners will be invited to re-brew their recipes on a commercial test batch system. Winners may be asked to have their beers featured at other events throughout Manitoba.

Additional prizes may be awarded to those winners present at the awards ceremony at the discretion of the competition organizers.

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.
