What will make things interesting is in a competition. Putting a table strength saison up against a Tripel.
since this information should be mandatory, I think it should be fairly easy for comp staff to split up the saisons, and make sure that table/super ones are judged with similarly sized beers.
It is a question I've got for the AHA though: Do they foresee combining/rearranging categories for NHC next year? Basically, if the guidelines aren't significantly changed further, would we have 40 medal categories consisting of exactly what has been released so far?
'cause we're gonna have like 40 International Lagers entries, and 1000 American and Specialty IPAs...
