A Style Type is a broad, overarching classification of groups of entries. Beer, Cider, and Mead are pre-defined and cover most of a given competition's entry pool. However, Administrators have the option to define Style Types unique to their competition.

Add a custom style type (e.g., wine, soda, saki, etc.) and its associated best of show methodology.
BCOE&M ships with three pre-defined style types: Beer, Cider, and Mead. Using the Style Types function, Administrators can add a custom style type, define whether a best of show round will be conducted for each style type (including pre-defined ones), and designate which placed entries from each table will be sent to the best of show round (1st place only, 1st and 2nd place, or 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places).
