2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Hybrid/Mix
Sub-Style Name:Specialty Beers
Origin:Other
Description:

These beers are brewed using unusual fermentable sugars, grains and starches that contribute to alcohol content other than, or in addition to, malted barley. The distinctive characters of these special ingredients should be evident either in the aroma, flavor or overall balance of the beer, but not necessarily in overpowering quantities. For example, maple syrup or potatoes would be considered unusual. Rice, corn, or wheat are not considered unusual.

Special ingredients must be listed when competing. A statement by the brewer explaining the “special nature (ingredient(s) and achieved character)” is essential in order for fair assessment in competitions. If this beer is a classic style with some specialty, the brewer should specify the classic style.

(Guidelines for competing: Spiced beers using unusual fermentables should be entered in the experimental category.)
