The Roanoke Jaycees and Star City Brewer’s Guild are sponsoring the Homebrew Competition in conjunction with the 2nd Annual Big Lick Beertopia. The winners will be announced during the Beertopia, which takes place on June 9, 2012 at LewisGale Field (where the Salem Red Sox play).
The exciting part: The beer entry named Best in Show will be brewed locally at the Roanoke Railhouse Brewery!
Beers must be homebrewed. No meads or ciders. Entrants must be 21 or older, and the beer must be entered in the name of the actual brewer. There are four categories: light, amber, dark and specialty.
For more information, and to download the official entry form, go to www.biglickbeertopia.com.
Just to get a sense as to how popular home brewing is among my blog readers, who among you has made beer before? What is it about the hobby that you enjoy?
