Since its inception, the Maryland Microbrewery Festival has included the homebrewing community as an important part of the Festival's goals of beer education and appreciation of all forms of the brewing arts. This year, the Twelfth Anniversary of the event, the festival will once again feature its annual Homebrew Competition.

  • Maryland Microbrewery Festival 2017 Homebrew Competition
    Entry Period is August 1, 2017 to September 16, 2017.

    Judging will take place during the festival, September 30, on the grounds of the historic Union Mills Homestead north of Westminster, MD. Winning brewer's recipe is brewed commercially by DuClaw Brewing Company (with the homebrewer's assistance on brewing day, of course!) for draught sales at select Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants in Maryland.  Buffalo Wild Wings has generously agreed to sponsor the Homebrew Competition again this year.

    Categories:  The competition is open to beer styles only, no mead, or cider, please. Sour Beers are accepted, judged, and eligible for category prizes, but are not eligible for Best Of Show.
     
    Winners will be announced from the stage at the conclusion of the judging.  Entrants do not need to be present to win.
