BLBFIT Professional Brewers Competition

By Best Little Brewfest in Texas (other events)

Saturday, June 14 2014 11:00 AM 9:00 PM

Texas Craft Brewers!
On Saturday, June 14 The Best Little Brewfest in Texas is holding their first Professional Brewers Competition. By focusing on only Texas breweries we hope to include every brewery from every corner of the state. We love craft beer and want every brewery in our great state to have a chance at something big. It will provide you, the professional brewer, an opportunity to break out of the norm and try something different, expand your consumer base, and be crowned king of Texas beer.

Located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area which is surrounded by a growing number of craft breweries, we understand that brewers want more than just a medal. You want to stand out based on your merit and on the quality and effort you put into your beer. We are scheduling ample time for judging to allow the beer to speak for itself. Our judges will not be rushed, and beers will be subject to a peer review-like process to ensure no beer will fall victim to the whim of a single judge. We will do all this and more because the quality of our judging process is very important to us.
