Ghost River has graciously offered to host a ProAm competition this year and it is just around the corner!Everyone is welcomed to join, even if you are not entering the competition!
For those unfamiliar, each homebrewer that wants to participate submits their entry along with a returnable deposit. They will all be judged by a panel of the staff/brewers from Ghost River (and others) . They will decide the winner based on best of show. The winner then gets to collaborate and have their beer scaled up (to an 18-30 barrel batch!) and brewed by Ghost River to be served in their tap room! They will then send that beer to GABF and provide the brewer with a ticket so that they can serve their beer (and check out the awesome festival as well)! The winner just has to provide transportation and hotel arrangements.
There are no rules on the style of beer you can enter, but keep in mind that it has to be scaled up and brewed on a commercial level. See below for competition rules.
They also want to make a day of the judging, so plan on bringing at least (2) 12oz bottles for judging, as well as more for sharing. They will give us a tour and have some activities set up for us. Please plan to be there a little early if you are bringing the entry the day of.
Please register by the registration deadline: 3/10/2018 10:00pm. The deposit must be turned in by Saturday 3/17/2018 by 5:00 PM. We are working on a drop off location and will keep you posted on the details.
