It would be handy if a moderator thumbtacked (sticky) this thread so when one clicked browse and recipes this link would be near tge top.

Here is an additional link that breaks the winning recipes down by ingredients...... Sort of like an update to "Designing Great Beers"...... There is a link in the original post that takes you to a spreadsheet with the recipe breakdowns.

It's been mentioned somewhere before, but it seems that lately, only the most intense of the styles are winning in their categories... like RIS or IPA. Not a trend I welcome, but I guess it is what it is.


Not likely to be awarded for nailing a great English Mild... or a solid Belgian Blonde, at least at NHC levels.


The danger of this data is it may drive folks to enter the more extreme substyles and outweigh a really great beer. Would be cool if Gordon could weigh in on this trend.

I know squat about competitions. Why are there years without gold medals? Is there a minimum score?

The way NHC works the category wins gold, silver, bronze, one each. So for example if a Dark American Lager wins Gold this year, then Munich Dunkel and Schwartsbeir will not. They are the 3 subcategories for category 4.

I would not take the web link as gospel. If you look there are some years with 2 golds in a category.
See Category 6, where there are 2 golds in 2004. There may be some where he missed a year. Still nice work.

Sometimes a different sub category wins the gold.
For example there are 5 different beers in the Light Lager category but only one wins a gold medal.  One year it could be Munich Helles and the next it could be Dortmunder Export.
