FoBAB 2013 Results

These are the results of the 2013 Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers competition, the 11th anniversary of the event, held on November 16th, 2013. The event is run by the Illinois Craft Brewer’s Guild and held this year at the Bridgeport art Center – Skyline Loft 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.”
