Best of Show

The Best of Show winner will receive a brand new 10 gallon stainless kettle from Spike Brewing! Special thanks to Spike for sponsoring the BOS.


The awards ceremony will take place following lunch and once judging is completed.

Places will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each judging table. Medals and prizes are yet to be determined - based upon previous competitions, the prize booty will be pretty significant.

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


An entry that advances to the Best of Show (BOS) round will be selected by the following breweries to be brewed as their ProAm entry into the 2017 Great American Beer Festival:

***2 other Pro-Ams are pending***

* Please note: The ProAm opportunity is only open to current AHA members who have never worked in a brewery in any capacity (e.g., a brewer, a bartender, a sales representative, etc.).
