1. deviating from what is standard, normal, or expected.
This is our annual special category in the competition. Choose your favorite BJCP beer style and go crazy with it! The beer style does not need to be one of the styles for this competition. But please, no wild fermented beers. Kettle Sours are acceptable however. And keep it to beer. No meads or ciders.
Add some fun adjuncts, or try a different brewing method. It’s honestly up to you. A “beauty contest” type of judging will determine the winners. A really well executed base style that has a unique twist is what we are looking for!
Entrants will be required to enter the base style beer in Reggie beer, and list any modifications that they made so that we know what we are tasting.
The winner of this category does not get to compete in Best of Show, but you do get a very cool award!
