Big Batch Brew Bash
The Big Batch Brew Bash is the KGB's signature homebrew competition. Started in 1996, it has grown into the largest single-style homebrew competition in the history of humankind. Impressive, but don't ask for documentation or a certificate from the world record folks at Guinness. It is also noted for being sanctioned by the American Homebrewers Association and free to enter.
Any homebrewer can enter up to two beers in the BBBB. They will be evaluated by BJCP-associated judges and fully annotated score-sheets will be returned to the brewer.
The Next Big Batch: May 19th, 2019
The 2019 style will follow the 2015 BJCP style guidelines 21B: Specialty IPA: Rye IPA.
Commercial examples: Arcadia Sky High Rye, Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye, Founders Reds Rye, Great Lakes Rye of the Tiger, Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye.
