FoBAB 2014 Results

These are the results of the 2014 Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers competition, the 12th anniversary of the event, held on November 14th and 15th, 2014. The event is run by the Illinois Craft Brewer’s Guild and held this year at the UIC Forum in Chicago. The National Wood Aged Beer Competition is judged by a panel of industry experts prior to the public sessions. Each beer is judged on the basis of how that underlying style reflects the expression of wood and/or barrel character. Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals are awarded in 11 categories as well as “best of show.”

This year there were 275 entries from 112 different breweries.
In 2013 there were 213 entries from 95 breweries, 2013 results here.
