Brewer offers inside look at judging at Great American Beer Festival


CLEVELAND, Ohio – What would you hope for after tasting more than 140 beers over three days? Rick Seibt of Willoughby Brewing Co. wanted one thing: A full beer.

For several years, Seibt had been hoping to receive an invitation to judge at the event, which sells out minutes after tickets go on sale. More than 60,000 people attended this year, including a record 750 brewers and 3,500 beers available to taste. Judges award medals on the final day of the fest.
