Hello fellow Homebrewers!
The Milwaukee Ale House and the Beer Barons of Milwaukee are very pleased to announce that the second annual Midwinter Homebrew Competition will be taking place on February 18th and 19th, 2011. This competition is held in conjunction with the 14th annual Midwinter Brew Fest which will be taking place at the Milwaukee Ale House on February 20th. Proceeds from the brew fest and the competition will go towards the MACC Fund.
Registration opens on January 1st and will be coordinated through the competition web site at http://midwinterhbc.beerbarons.org
. Entries will be accepted January 15th through February 6th at Northern Brewer in West Allis, WI.
We are also very pleased to announce that starting this year the competition will be a part of the Midwest Home Brewer of the Year circuit.
In addition to the category and Best of Show awards, one of the winning Bock entries (BJCP categories 5A, 5B, 5C, or 15C) will be chosen by the Milwaukee Ale House to be brewed commercially by Milwaukee Brewing Co. The chosen entry will then be tapped during a special event honoring the entrant at the Milwaukee Ale House.
The Best of Show Brewer will also be featured at the 2011 World of Beer Festival along with one of their creations.
Additional details can be found on the competition web site and our Facebook page. Information regarding judging and stewarding opportunities are to come. Please pass this information on to your fellow homebrewing friends and direct any inquiries to the Contact page on the registration page at http://midwinterhbc.beerbarons.org/index.php?section=contact
Thanks and best of luck to all that enter!
