GEBL IPA Bracket Competition

GEBL (Greater Everett Brewers League) IPA Bracket Challenge in Everett, WashingtonEntry window: January 31st to February 13th
Drop-off deadline: February 16th
Competition: February 20th

We are going to be changing the competition a bit this year to follow the new BJCP 2015 style guidelines, but we will still be going with four brackets and the top 16 entries in the bracket round. The entry registration website has been setup accordingly and the brackets will be English IPA (12C), American IPA (21A), Specialty IPA (21B), and Double IPA (22A). If you have an Experimental IPA, please classify it as a Specialty IPA and make sure to include the experimental parts of the reciepe. We will do our best to group them together.

Participants are encouraged to enter as many different IPA beers as they wish. Please do not enter the same beer twice. For additional and updated information about the competition, please go to: Registration for the competition will open on January 11th and can be completed at
