“A great craft beer award concept executed by great people.  The USBTC is one of only four competitions we enter and we truly value the opportunity to submit Peticolas beers alongside those of industry giants.  USBTC honors awarded to Peticolas provide our team with a great sense of accomplishment and are a huge source of pride.” -  Michael Peticolas - Peticolas brewing

"We really admire the work of the USBTC" Bill Covaleski - Victory Brewing

"I always look at the winners of the USBTC as the industry leaders." Russ Kilsch - Lakefront Brewery

 "We appreciate the USBTC and the attention to qualifying great beers" Dave Engbers - Founders Brewing

"The regional nature of the USBTC makes it unique and, in my opinion, special...The USBTC provides the kind of feedback most beer consumers are interested in; a breakdown of the top producers by style and region, and it's just fundamentally cool to know that a pale ale coming out of Alabama could win its region and go on to compete against the best pale ales being produced in beercentric states like California, Oregon and Colorado."  Joey Redner - Cigar City Brewing

"It's is a real honor to win a Grand Champion Award from the USBTC." Kirby Nelson - Capital Brewing

"We are so happy to be part of USBTC and will continue to support them and their efforts" Walter Trifari - Coastal Brewing

“We’re thrilled to have our flagship beer recognized as the best of its kind in our region,” - Chris Trogner Tröegs Brewing

"We're very excited and honored by the recognition that we receive from the USBTC. Twice a year, our brewers are given the opportunity to see how well Port Brewing and Lost Abbey beers stack up against those from other great brewing regions. The results speak loudly about the commitment to excellence our brewers uphold each and every day." Tomme Arthur - Port and Lost Abby Brewing
