This is a really unique new competition, where small local independent craft brewers in Ireland submitted their beer (unmarked and unidentified) to their peers in the microbrewing sector, who have also entered, for judging.
This year breweries have submitted one beer of any style each...
We're really pleased to have created this proper competition, judged by breweries.
We reckon all the breweries had a good time rating and judging too!!

ICBI Members submitted their beers unbranded and unmarked and they were sent out to all entrants to judge using BCJP Guidelines.  Participants received a scoring sheet which listed just the basic style of the beer.
