The third annual Bottle My Brew Ohio Homebrew Challenge is returning to West Point Market in Akron. As with the previous competitions, any Ohio homebrewer is welcome to submit a beer for the contest, which includes $2,500 in cash and other prizes.
The winning beer also is made on a commercial scale by Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. and distributed through West Point and other locations. The first winner -- Bernese Barley Wine Ale made by brothers Nick and Justin Herstich of Akron -- went on to receive a "Double Gold" at this year's New York International Beer Competition in New York City.
Entries are due at West Point by Aug. 16. The winner -- and others who finish in the top 10 -- are announced during the grocer's Best of Ohio Craft Beer Tasting in October.
