2018 Comp Results

Entries for the 2018 Fraser Coast were down by about 30% on the 2017 Comp, however, there was a wider reach across the styles range for 2018, which was great to see.
This year, we ran 10 tables of 3 judges. The stewards found themselves incredibly busy throughout the day and did a mighty job keep the flow going. Many thanks for your efforts. Also a big thanks to Rodney who did all the data entry for the scores throughout the day. It’s greatly appreciated.

This year we had brewers attend from as far away as Darwin and Townsville right down into NSW.

Also a special thanks to our sponsors this year (Morgans for the Kit Beer Section) and (Brouhaha@ Maleny for the Keg of Blonde Ale for the dinner beers).

The following medal guidelines are set as per the QABC standard for medals issued
