The 2012 Grand Masters Championships took place in Blaine, MN.

Surly Brewing served as the local organizing committee (LOC) for the event, with Jake McKean as the TD.

2012 marked the expansion from a 2 to a 3 day event, and a change in timing from summer to labor day.  With this shift, there was insufficient interest needed to hold a Masters Women's Championship.
