2015 Comp de L'abbaye Normale - (Klub Member Only) Belgian Competition
Held annually, the Comp de L'abbaye Normale is a CASK only Belgian competition that is one of the most anticipated competitions on the brewing calendar. This year's event will be held in October at Bold City. As this Belgian competition has evolved, we have received more and more support from the local craft breweries. This year is no different!

This year's Abbaye Normale has garnered support from most, if not all, of the major craft brewers in the Jacksonville area. The fortunate brewer who's beer is selected as winner of the following categories, will have the honor of working with the associated head brewer and scaling up their recipe for mass consumption and ultimate glory. Please note the categories/breweries below:

Aardwolf - Session Belgian styles less than 4.8% ABV. (quick sour styles are ok)
Bold City - Belgian Stout
Green Room - Trappist Single (refer to the new 2015 Guidelines)
Intuition Ale Works - Dubble
Pinglehead - Belgian Blonde
Seven Bridges - Belgian Rye Brown
Zeta - Belgian Pale Ale
