There is so much great beer and so many great wings in Ohio, that crowning an offical champion would be difficult, but we’re up to the challenge. The OWBF will be a go to guide for the best in Ohio. We also want our partners to take pride in the festival, so we’re creating a badass, one of a kind, championship trophy.
In order to get the OWBF Trophy and the bragging rights, we’re assembling a team of local wing and beer “experts” to judge the competiton as well as relying on fan votes.
HOW ARE WE JUDGING?
We will assemble a judges pannel that consists of 5-7 people. These judges willbe a mix of expert wing/bbq & beer judges, local food bloggers and media, local wing & brewing industry professionals, and wing & beer lovers.
They will sample each participants entry marking a score of 1-5 on taste, aroma, texture, apperance, flavor, and overall “goodness” (drinkability & execution). We will then combine the scores and the participant with the highest average will be crowned Champion.
