Toronto Beer Week Homebrew Contest

Postby Bobsy » Fri Jul 22, 2011 6:08 am

Hi guys,

We're running the Toronto Beer Week Homebrew Contest again. Just like last year, entry is free, judging is to the BJCP categories (but not BJCP certified), and you'll receive feedback from our TBW judging panel. We're currently finalising the prizing, and will announce some pretty damn cool stuff soon. Entry deadline is September 9th, and I've posted all the info you need to know on the bartowel homepage: http://www.bartowel.com/?p=2672

For the rules and entry forms, check out our website: http://torontobeerweek.com/toronto-beer ... ew-contest

Good luck and happy brewing!

so does anyone want to have a "bartowel side competition" again this year? i think last year we did ordinary bitters... what style should we go with this time?

i'm sure we'll have a couple to enter either way. :D

Hey Rob, is there still a "Brew of 1812" category?

We figured we'd un that one next year because folks probably need a lot more notice. Seems like a better fit anyway.

Thanks for the clarification. Definitely will give extra time for those wishing to take on the challenge.

The prizes last year were great!

The entry is free and if your local you could probably even drop it off. It's a great way to get feedback on your brews & potentially win a prize. You'd be crazy NOT to enter!

Derek's right! The prizes this year are stacking up to be even better than last year - if all of this comes together I know of no other contest n North America that offers this range and amount of cool prizes. We'll be posting details shortly...

Agreed!


Looking forward to feedback on what I've been brewing lately, I have some really interesting stuff to enter this year. :)
