The Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fest presents the second annual Alltech Commonwealth Cup competition. Following the success of the third annual international Dublin Craft Beer Cup in Ireland in February, Alltech is bringing the excitement and passion back home to the Bluegrass State with the only professional craft beer competition in Kentucky. Brewers from around the globe will face off as their craft brews of all styles are judged by a panel of industry veterans for gold, silver and bronze medals. From these winners, only one beer and brewery will be awarded the Alltech Commonwealth Cup.
Any craft brewery as defined by the Brewers Association is welcome to enter. If you are not sure if your product qualifies, please contact Phil Hardy at [email protected], and be sure to read the latest musings on the BA’s craft brewer definition.
