Brewer of the Year 2015


This year we are having a internal club competition for the title of MontreAlers’ Brewer of the Year!

How it works: We will be using the same point system as (1st Place = 3pts, 2nd Place = 2pts, 3rd Place = 1pts, Honorable Mention = 0.5pts). The MontreAler who accumulates the most amount of points at the end of the calendar year takes home the title of the club’s top brewer and a sweet prize! Prize(s) to be announced.

What are the competitions: Please review the Competitions page on but we will announce additional competitions via the email list, the website (see below), and our Facebook page that will also count!

When will the winner be announced: The “MontreAler’s Brewer of the Year” award will be announced at the club’s Christmas party (December 2015).
