Competition Fresh Hop Category Dates & Deadlines

For 2021, due to the unique, relatively early timing of the competition, the GABF Fresh Hop Category judging will be held at a later date. This later timing will allow for hop harvest and beer production, and as a way to still include Fresh Hop Beers in this prestigious competition. Because of the delayed timing, Fresh Hop medals will not count towards Brewery of the Year awards
