Again this year, the Reggale and Dredhop will be a qualifying event for the Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing (MCAB).
Ribbons will be awarded for the top three entries in each category as well as ribbons for the Best of Show Beer and Mead. We reserve the right to combine categories as necessary due to the number of entries. Prizes will also be awarded.
