Award of Honor

Criteria

The Award of Honor is given to a Master Brewers member who has delivered significant contributions to brewing science, technology, and operations that have benefited the association. It is not expected that the recipient will have made contributions in all these areas. It could be that the significant contribution is in one area only. 
The award is not bestowed each year, only in the years when there is an exceptional member who fits the criteria.
