Award Winning Beer

The Best Florida Beer competition each year invites Florida’s craft breweries to send in their best beers.  Those beers are then judged by a panel of peer brewers and Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) certified judges and the beers that are awarded the most points by the judges are awarded medals.  Then the points tallied are added up and the Best Beer in Florida is awarded.


The Florida SMaSH Beer Festival celebrates the creativity and camaraderie of breweries in the Sunshine State. Breweries around the state compete to win best beer, using one Single Malt and one Single Hop strain.
