The competition is open to all Canadian owned commercial brewers whose products are produced and packaged in Canada. You may submit entries in as many categories as you like (limit 12 total), but each brand may be entered in only one category.
The Canadian Brewing Awards are sanctioned by the BJCP. Judging will be based on adherence to published style guidelines. Consult the Style Guidelines on the Canadian Brewing Awards website to determine the appropriate category for each product submission.
Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies will be awarded in each beer style category at the CBAC Awards Dinner on May 4, 2019 in Toronto, ON.
Following the conference, brewers will receive full judging notes on each of their submissions.
Please note that categories with less than 5 entries may be eliminated or compressed into other categories. In the event that this happens, you will be contacted.
Brewers can select any four product entries to represent their brewery for Brewery of the Year honours. The combined score for the four entries, based on a 5 points for gold, 3 points for silver, 1 point for bronze scoring system, will determine the winner.
