2019 Best Pale Ale in the South East – War Hawk Big Boss Brewing Company Raleigh, NC
Acton, MA – The United States Beer Tasting ChampionshipTM (USBTC) recently completed the summer event of its 25th annual competition. A total of 538 beers from 174 breweries were examined across 17 different beer categories. Within each category, the USBTC determined both a Grand Champion and the best entry from each of seven US regions: 1) Northeast, 2) Mid-Atlantic 3) Southeast, 4) Midwest, 5) Rockies / Southwest, 6) California and 7) Northwest / Pacific.
The USBTC takes a unique approach in that its competition is held in multiple stages. Sequential field trials are conducted wherein judges evaluate beers and select the best to advance to subsequent rounds. This allows beers to be judged in relatively small flights while ensuring that the best beers are still determined through head-to-head competition. All beers were tasted in blinded fashion and judged on a hedonic scale.
The USBTC recognizes that American brewers are continually establishing new beer styles and reviving interest in classic styles. As one way to acknowledge this, the USBTC devotes “pull-out” categories in each competition to styles that are currently emerging or being faithfully carried on. In our most recent event, Imperial Hazy IPA, Hazy IPA, and Fruited Sour Beer were selected as the USBTC pull-out categories.
