ST. THOMAS, ON – Railway City Brewing has announced details of its 3rd 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 Sunday April 27th, when all submissions will be judged using BJCP guidelines.
Winners will be announced the following weekend, with cash prizes to be awarded to the top three beers ($300 for 1st place, $150 for 2nd, $50 for 3rd), along with non-cash prizes from various sponsors and suppliers.
The 1st place winner will also be invited to brew a full batch of their beer together with Railway City’s brewers. The result will be released in July under the Platform 14 label, following on last year’s Platform 13: Pond Hopper (an English-style IPA with west coast hops by Ryan Harrison), and 2012’s Platform 12: Off the Beet’n Track (a unique beet and honey beer created by Eric Desjardins).
More details on the competition including an entry form can be found now on the Railway City website.
