In the first round, voters were asked to nominate their favorites for each category with each voter allowed one nominee per category. The top 10 (+/-) nominees from each category were then put to a final round vote. 2,258 Georgia beer drinkers cast their votes in the final round and the top 3 from each category were selected for our winners list.
