    Oxford, Ohio (January, 2017) - The registration for the 2017 U.S. Open Beer Championship is now open. Brewers can register beers thru May 22. Beers will need to arrive in Oxford, Ohio between May 22 - June 2. The medal winners and Grand National Champion will be announced on July 11th. The U.S. Open is the only brewery competition to include professional breweries and the AHA's National Homebrew Competition Gold Medal Winners. Last year, breweries from Maui to Munich sent in almost 5,000 beers representing over 90 different styles.
    Last year, Firestone Walker Brewing from Paso Robles, CA was named Grand National Champion by winning three gold medals, one silver medal and a bronze medal. Their three beers that were awarded gold medals were Union Jack IPA, Double Jack and Parabajava. Melvin Brewing from Jackson, Wyoming placed second while Cigar City Brewing from Tampa, Florida took home third.

    Judging in the U.S. Open Beer Championships is blind; the judges do not know what beers they are tasting. The final round of judging will be held at the Quarter Barrel Brewery & Pub in Oxford, Ohio.
    Call for Entries
    Beers will need to arrive between May 22 - June 2. Each brewery may enter a maximum of 10 beers. Entry fee will be $60 per beer/root beer. A brewery must submit a minimum of 5 beers to be considered one of the Top Ten Breweries. Entry Forms and Rules can be found on the competition website under registration.
    Over 95 categories will be judged this year. Winners will receive a medal in the shape of a beer stein for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The Top 10 breweries overall will be featured in on BeerInfo.com. Along with the medals awarded, a Grand National Champion accolade will be awarded based on a point system for beers (5 minimum) entered in the competition.
