All MASH members are eligible to compete in MASH's Brewer of the
Year (B.O.T.Y.) competition. At each month's meeting, a specific style
of beer will be judged. Members collect B.O.T.Y. points for finishing
first, second, or third in this monthly competition and for receiving
awards in some external competitions.
Winners of each monthly B.O.T.Y. competition must submit their recipes for publication on this site to receive their points.
B.O.T.Y runs from December to November of each year. MASH awards for
B.O.T.Y are given out at the winter solsitice party.
