SMASH Competition Results

Thank you so much to everyone who entered our SMASH competition. It was truly an honour to be given the chance to taste your beer. We had a lot of fun doing it! Congratulations to the following winners:

Winners as determined by our BJCP judges, Scott Butchart and Damon Elgie. BJCP

Scott and Damon really went above and beyond for us in judging this competition. They each tasted 22 beers in a single sitting. They take beer-judging very seriously and do apologize for the brief and rushed notes. Normally BJCP judges are expected to judge beer against criteria for a specific category. With the incredible variation that the entries displayed, it was understandably challenging to choose the Best in Show.

Wes Goldschmidt – Maris Otter/Motueka/Imperial A 24 Dry Hop.

  • 40/50 on BJCP Scoresheet.
  • Wes takes home the grand prize: A sack of Maris Otter and a pound of Motueka (Or a sack of grain and a pound of hops of his choice up to $100 value)
