About the U.S. Open Beer Championship: This competition judges more beer styles than any other competition in the world. In addition, it is the only competition to include beers from both professional breweries as well as award-winning homebrewers. Judges are selected from England, Canada, and the United States to perform blind tastings; they only know the category they are tasting and not which beers or breweries have been entered.
