Announcing the Best of Boston Homebrew Competition

The Homebrew Emporium is proud to announce the Best of Boston Homebrew Competition 2014

Brewer registration is now OPEN! This competition welcomes all homebrewers who live within the I-495 loop around the Boston metropolitan area to submit up to two entries. Beer registration and drop-off opens 18 October 2014. There is a $7 entry fee per entry. Any revenue in excess of costs will be donated to the Ales for ALS™, non-profit based at the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) here in Cambridge, MA.

There are lots of great category sponsors with more being added every day! You can see the list of them here.

We are using a modified version of the BJCP categories and scoring sheets. All entrants will receive feedback on their beer. Category winners advance to the Best of Show round. The top 3 homebrewers in the Best of Show get brew their recipe at Aeronaut Brewery & Foods Hub in Somerville, MA for an event to crown a Grand Champion! Details of this event are still coming together. Stay tuned!
