The highest scoring Belgian Golden or Dark Strong Ale will have the chance to brew their recipe with Gibbs Hundred Brewing Company and the Best Of Show Beer will be brewed at Pig Pounder Brewery The beer will be brewed on their commercial system and the winning brewer will participate in the brew day. Both Pig Pounder Brewery and Gibbs Hundred reserve the right to alter the recipe to fit their system and ingredient requirements.
