Each year Lander Brewfest awards a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place CHAMPIONS AWARD for a pre-selected style (or styles) of beer.  2021’s competition entries will highlight two beer styles: Classic Dark and Hop-Forward, and three winners will be awarded in each category. Entries must be above 8% abv and MUST declare a category from the Brewer’s Association Style guidelines.  Entries will be judged by how closely they meet their declared style.

In 2021, for the first time ever, the Lander Brewfest beer competition will be judged by a panel of 100% certified beer judges. Judging will take place the morning of Saturday, August 14th, and the winners will be announced at the beginning of the Saturday afternoon session. We are grateful to the Wyoming Craft Brewers Guild for their critical assistance in finding the judges for this year’s competition.
