The West Point Market in Akron is accepting submissions for its second annual Bottle My Brew Ohio Homebrew Challenge. The deadline is July 13.
The competition includes cash and other prizes, and the winning beer will be brewed by Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. in Akron and released commercially at West Point and Winking Lizard Tavern locations throughout Northeast Ohio.
Entries will be judged against similar styles, but the total score will determine the winner. The top 10 scores, regardless of style, will compete in a final live judging at West Point Market’s Halloween Craft Brew Tasting on Nov. 1, 2013.
The competition is open to amateur homebrewers living in Ohio and age 21 or older. For full details and an entry form, click here.
Last year's winners were Nick Herstich and Justin Herstich, who made an American Barleywine. They won $1,000 and other prizes, and Thirsty Dog is releasing their beer this year under the name Bernese Barleywine Ale.Thirsty
