Sean Kampshoff has been brewing beer at home for over a decade and was excited when he won the Lift Bridge Brewing Company‘s (Minn.) homebrew contest with his doppelbock that would be entered into the 2016 GABF Pro-Am Competition.
There were 91 beers judged in the 2016 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Pro-Am Competition, each having humble beginnings in a kitchen, garage, or back patio. Each beer is an award winner before it even arrives to Denver, having already medaled at a Beer Judge Certification Program/AHA-sanctioned competition and been chosen by a professional brewer for the GABF competition.
