  1. Great article – thanks for being brave enough to share the feedback. It is always helpful to get constructive feedback from competitions!

    I just got my feedback from the Sam Adams Longshot competition with similar results. They said my beer didn’t fit the style, which is true. I brew beers that are good to drink and then when I send it to a competition, I just put down the category they are closest to, though the judges don’t always agree. My first entry was an American Wheat that they said was too German (I did use german hops) so it got docked down and I only got a 27 and a 30. Haven’t heard back on the other one yet.
