Once again, the OBAs have been sanctioned by the BJCP and entries will be assessed by BJCP judges of varying rank designations. The judges are drawn from the same pool as those used by the Canadian Brewing Awards. Judges will be organized into tables of 2 or 3 judges and each table will be focused on specific styles and flights.  Judging of each beer is based on the OBA style guideline.

We now have 36 categories and are continuing with:

  • Beer of the Year
    • Awarded to the beer / brewer that has been judged to be Best in Show

OBA Style Guide 2019 

  • In order to be eligible to enter the Ontario Brewing Awards, you must be a majority Canadian-owned brewery with your head offices and main brewery facility located in the Province of Ontario.
