Calling all homebrewers! We know that homebrewing is a vital part of the local beer industry. Many of the craft breweries that we all love got their start homebrewing in basements and garages. If you think your homebrew has what it takes, join us at the Kentucky Craft Beer Festival and enter the Hardin County Homebrew Competition below. Prizes will be awarded to the top-three brews as judged by our panel of “experts”. And the top brewer will enjoy the eternal glory as the second ever Hardin County Homebrew Champion.
Presented by the Homebrewer of Hardin County!
The style to be judged is an Oatmeal Stout. Any variety is accepted, but the basic mash bill must be an Oatmeal Stout.
Homebrewers must bring 3 bottles of their homebrew for judging purposes and have them clearly labeled. Beer will be judged by a panel of beer industry experts and professional brewers.
