ST. THOMAS, ON – Railway City Brewing has announced details of its 2nd annual Home Brew Competition, with the grand prize being the opportunity to brew and release a commercial batch of the winning beer.
Running to coincide with National Home Brew Day, an annual event that falls on the first Saturday of May each year, the competition invites home brewers to submit their beer of any style to be considered for a prize. Entries must be submitted to Railway City by May 18th, with judging using BJCP guidelines set to take place on May 25th.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three beers ($300 for 1st place, $150 for 2nd, $50 for 3rd), and non-cash prizes from various sponsors and suppliers will also be awarded.
In addition, the 1st place winner will be invited to brew a full batch of their beer together with Railway City’s brewer. The result will be released in July under the name Platform 13, following on Platform 12: Off the Beet’n Track, a unique beet and honey beer created by Eric Desjardins that took top spot in 2012.
More details on the competition including an entry form can be found now on the Railway City website.
