I just finished reading the winners list for the World Beer Cup and noticed that many of the high-profile breweries that have won awards in certain categories in prior years did not win again. Yet I see some of these breweries win a medal in another style category so I know there was a presence there by those breweries at the judging. My question is whether breweries purposely don't enter the same style competition by choice so that they can let other breweries have a better chance at glory, or is it more likely that they have entered again and just didn't win a medal this year? We never know which breweries/beers were entered other than the three winners, but it would be interesting to see the entire list of entrants in each style category. Do brewers like to enter multiple style events if they choose to compete at all, or just a select one or two styles that they feel a good chance for a medal?
