It's that time of year again! Barley's Brewing Company's Homebrew competition is back for it's 22nd year! We are excited to welcome homebrewers and their beers to participate in what is always an exciting day in the Columbus beer scene. With an ever growing number of breweries in the central Ohio area the appreciation for good beer is at an all time high. With that in mind, we're hopeful the craft beer scene has inspired more homebrewers to enter our competition than ever before.
Barley's is one of the oldest breweries in the city and we're serious about good beer. We love celebrating the creativity that homebrewers bring to the table and we hope we are able to inspire people with our own beers that we offer here at the brewpub. This competition is our way of honoring and celebrating the local homebrewing community.
Our Brewmaster, Angelo Signorino, will assemble some of the best brewing talents from local breweries to act as judges. They'll spend the next few weeks finalizing their decision. The announcement of the winner will be made during our Afternoon With The Brewers event on June 4th. There you'll also have the opportunity to mingle with brewermasters willing to offer their professional advice, enjoy many of their own brews they'll be bringing with them, and try last year's winner — Christopher Sipko and Bob Milewsky's delicious Saison!
If your beer is chosen as our winner, you'll have the opportunity to brew your beer on our 10-barrel system next year and share it with the community. Some of our past winners have even gone on to open successful breweries of their own! So if you think your beer is ready to be shared with the city — and maybe even the world, we encourage you to enter!
Submission dates are from Monday, May 15th to Saturday, May 20th from 11:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m., and interested participants can drop their submissions off right here at Barley's. Each style requires three (3) unlabled twelve ounce (12 oz) bottles
