Abbaye Normale

Comp de L’abbaye Normale

Held annually, the Comp de L’abbaye Normale is a Belgian competition that is one of the most anticipated competitions on the brewing calendar. As this Belgian competition has evolved, we have received more and more support from the local craft breweries. This year is no different!


2024 Comp de L’abbaye Normale – Belgian Competition has garnered support from many of the major craft brewers in the Jacksonville area. The fortunate brewer who’s beer is selected as winner of the following categories, will have the honor of working with the associated head brewer and scaling up their recipe for mass consumption and ultimate glory.  This competition will be accepting Belgian substyles in the BJCP 2021 guidelines: 26D: Belgian Dark Strong Ale, 24A: Belgian Wit, 21B: Belgian IPA, Imperial Rye Saison (min. 7% to be aged in Pinkook Rye Bourbon barrels,) and 26A: Trappist Single.
