The West Point Market in Akron is adding an extra incentive for homebrewers to enter its first “Brew My Beer Ohio Homebrew Challenge.” The grocery will hand out cash prizes to the top brewers. The first-place winner will receive $1,000, a trophy and have their beer brewed and bottled by Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. in Akron. The beer will be sold at West Point Market and the Winking Lizard Tavern. The second-place winner will receive $500. There are cash prizes for the 10 best beers. The grocery announced the competition last month. As reported earlier, the contest is open to any Ohio homebrewer. Entries must be received at the grocery by 5 p.m. July 11, along with a $5 entry fee per beer.
