2016 WCI BEST OF SHOW

The Judges at "Work"
On Saturday, May 14, some of the best noses and palettes in the beer enthusiast community came together at Sactown Union Brewery for the West Coast Invitational Commercial Craft Competition.
Over 160 beers were entered and judged for 10 Categories and Best of Show...
The judging was a Triple Blind Tasting... which means the judges had no idea what brand of beer they were tasting for each category.
And now, what you have all been waiting for... here are the winners of the 2016 West Coast Invitational Commercial Craft Competition... (if you're lucky you'll get to taste some of these winning brews at Saturday West Coast Invitational)

BEST OF SHOW...
Ha! You don't get to know that yet. ;-) Stay tuned...
The West Coast Invitational is more then just another beerfest. The WCI is a true craft brew lovers appreciation party.
With over 120 different brews, including specialty brews & ciders that you won't find on the average tap, the West Coast Invitational was designed to give you 4 hours of memories to be talked about all year.
And lets not forget the Commercial Craft Competition!
Limited to West Coast breweries, the WCI is one of the last remaining fully sanctioned Craft Brewer competitions. Those that are interested in being a part of the competitive fun can check out the event at http://wcicomp2016.ubsbrew.com.
Tickets are available online or at a couple select area breweries.
But don't delay, they've been known to sell out fast!
