Big Batch Brew Bash
The Next Big Batch: Sunday, June 12th, 2022
The 2020 style will follow the Amended Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Section 9: Coffee Beer:
Color: Pale to black depending on the underlying style
Clarity: Clear to hazy is acceptable
Perceived Malt Aroma & Flavor: Medium-low to medium malt sweetness provides balance with coffee flavor and aroma
Perceived Hop Aroma & Flavor: Low to high depending on the underlying style
Perceived bitterness: Varies with underlying style
Fermentation Characteristics: Typical of underlying style
Body: Reflective of the underlying beer style
Additional notes: Coffee beers incorporate coffee in any form. Coffee character should be apparent as the defining attribute of this category, ranging from subtle to intense, and should be in harmony with other attributes of the underlying beer. Other flavors arising from the use of flavored coffee may also be present. Within the framework of these competition guidelines, stouts and porters made with coffee are entered elsewhere. To allow for accurate judging the brewer must list details about the coffee(s) used, and any other ingredients or processes used ("medium roast cold extract in bright tank" for example). The brewer must also indicate the classic or experimental ale or lager style of the underlying base beer; the brewer may indicate "no classic style" in instances where the base beer does not hew to a category within these competition guidelines. Beer entries not accompanied by this information will be at a disadvantage during judging. Original Gravity (°Plato) Varies with style • Apparent Extract/Final Gravity (°Plato) Varies with style • Alcohol by Weight (Volume) Varies with style • Hop Bitterness (IBU) Varies with style • Color SRM (EBC) Varies with style
