The GABF Pro-Am entries are brewed by professional craft brewers based on award-winning homebrew recipes from American Homebrewers Association (AHA) members. Homebrew recipes are scaled up and brewed at a craft brewery for submission into the competition. Visit Great American Beer Festival Competition Info to learn about the Pro-Am Competition Rules and Regulations that apply to the homebrewer and the brewery.
Medals are awarded to both the professional and amateur brewers of the top three entries submitted to the competition. Representatives of Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. and HopUnion, sponsors for the 2010 Pro-Am Competition, present the awards at the Awards Ceremony during the Saturday afternoon session of the GABF. The medals for the GABF Pro-Am competition do not count toward the GABF Brewery or Brewpub of the Year award.
