Re: Biere de Garde's at the GABF

Well, here are the Belgian-style categories they judged by:

Category: 52 Belgian-Style White (or Wit) / Belgian Style Wheat

Category: 53 French- Belgian-Style Saison

Category: 54 Belgian- and French-Style Ale

Category: 55 Belgian-Style Sour Ale

Category: 56 Belgian-Style Abbey Ale

Category: 57 Belgian-Style Strong Specialty Ale

Considering they don't even differentiate between dubbel and tripel, I'm not surprised they don't have a separate bier de garde category. And any beers entered that were in the bier de garde style had to compete against at least saisons, "farmhouse ales" (whatever that means), and other non-differentiated beers. Not that I really mind - there seems to be alot of blurring of the lines when it comes to the country ales of northern France and southern Belgium, so I doubt there could be much of a claim to authenticity. Hopefully just good beer.
