Results from the 14th Annual the 14th Annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition (RI)

Great International Beer Festival

The 14th Annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition was held on Friday, November 12, 2010, in Providence, Rhode Island, one day before the 18th Annual Great International Beer Festival. Festivals of America produced both events. New England beer newspaper Yankee Brew News was the media sponsor of the competition.

Two hundred eighty-seven beers and ciders from breweries and cideries across the U.S. and from around the world entered the competition. Forty-five professional brewers and beer industry journalists acted as judges in a blind tasting format. First, second and third place awards were presented in 19 categories of ales, lagers and ciders. The judges knew only the style and subcategory of each beer and cider.
