For the brewers who qualified for the Bert Grant Award Competition, here are the competition details:

The purpose of this competition is to find the Best of Show from the Best of Shows. Qualified entrants are allowed to submit ANY of their beers for the competition (it does not need to be the one that placed in the BOS, but that may be a good indicator of their best beer). So, obviously rebrews of your beers are allowed. They can enter in any BJCP style (2015 Guidelines) that they want. This does include meads and ciders. The beers will be evaluated in a BOS round format to BJCP guidelines by a panel of judges selected by the WAHA Judge Committee Chair (Jerome Seipp). We are planning to announce the winner in conjunction with the WAHA Awards announcements and Cascade Brewers Cup awards announcements.

For each placement in a BOS round, the qualified brewers are allowed one entry (up to 3 entries max per person for all qualifications). See the list below for how many entries individuals are qualified for.

Entries Qualified:

Brendon George - 2 entries
Timothy Leber - 2 entries
James Dunlap - 1 entry
Caitlin & Garreth Wippel - 1 entry
