Disclaimer: Competitions with a higher standard error would indicate a high variance in rankings and scores may include individual submission bias.
MHP presents a homebrew competition ranking system, determined by the competitors. Minimum reuirements for inclusion in the ranking are that at least 5 surveys must be submitted, they must be from entrants not affiliated with the competiiton, and the results must have a standard error of less than 5.
Competitions will be assigned points out of a maximum possible 100 score. Competitions will be assessed as Best in class, Excellent (>P90), Great (>P70), Average (>P40), Below Average (>P20), Poor (<P20), and Worst in Class. This ranking system is based upon the assessment of the quality a competition offers to the entrants within the following 10 criteria.
Placement award quality
Comprehensiveness of entries
Award ceremony quality and offering of a virtual ceremony
Ease of entry delivery
Each area of assessment is weighted based upon a paired comparison analysis of the 10 criteria performed by the board of the MHP. A full set of scoring criteria is described here.
Note: This ranking system is currently in beta and is under development/evolution. We would appreciate any feedback you may have by emailing masterhomebrewerprogram AT gmail DOT com.
