Get ready for our 6th annual Lancaster Iron Brewer Homebrew Competition hosted by Lancaster Homebrew! This is a BJCP certified event and entries will be due by March 3, 2018. There will be BJCP Best of Show Ribbons and Two Brewers Choice Awards which will be chosen by the head brewer of each of our sponsor breweries.
***** Brewers Choice will be chosen from Best of Show finalists. Each brewery will choose a beer based on creativity, marketability and if it can be reasonably reproduced at the brewery. If your beer is chosen, you will get to brew your beer with the brewery that chose it and it will be placed on tap at that brewery on a date chosen by the brewery. Please note that each brewery will make a reasonable representation of the winner chosen with the brewing ingredients they have available
(in some cases ingredient substitutions must be made). Also note that the BJCP Best of Show Winners may or may not be the same beers chosen for Brewers Choice. So get brewing and be a part of the fun!
Winners will be announced at our Awards Party at Columbia Kettle Works on March 13, 2018. See below for details
