Re: Any brewer opinions of the GABF categories, as current?

LStaff, every homebrew competition doesn't follow them. It is probably safe to say they all tell you to categorize your entries by BJCP standards, if something doesn't fit anywhere then there is an "experiemental" category. It's tough to take BOS from there, but it can happen. About 8-10 years ago a guy won the AHA Homebrewer of the Year with a "toasted coconut porter".

Anyway, you have to have some standard to go by, but also have the flexibility to modify the rules to fit your entries. I've been the main coordinator of 2 competitions, in both cases we had categories that were not BJCP. It's like flying a plane. You start with a flight plan but if that plan means flying into a storm that pops up you chamge it as needed to make the flight work.
