People’s Choice Awards!
All attendees get three bottle caps that they can use to vote for their favorite beer by dropping the caps into designated containers. Ribbons and awards will go to 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place vote earners.

Brewer’s Choice Awards!
A separate tasting and judging will be conducted by professional brewers, led by Fal Allen of Anderson Valley Brewing Company, to select a top quality beer to be brewed by AVBC. The winning brewer will get to assist on brew day, learn about scaling their recipe, and use a commercial brew system.

“Fire” Ingredients
In addition to the main awards above there will be a bonus prize for the most popular beer that incorporates any kind of “fire” ingredient – interpret that as you will!
