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 getters.

Brewer’s Choice Awards!
A separate tasting & judging will be conducted by professional brewers led by Scott Jones of Ukiah Brewing Company to select a top quality beer to be brewed by Ukiah Brewing Company and served to the public at the pub. The winning brewer will get to assist on brew day at the pub, learning about scaling their recipe and using a commercial brew system.
